PulteGroup appointed human resources veteran Kevin Henry as executive vice president and chief people officer, effective June 20.
He previously held the same positions at BlueLinx Corp., a wholesale distributor of residential and commercial building products, and hotel operator Extended Stay America.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kevin Henry, an exceptional leader who brings over 30 years of experience in human resources, community engagement and communications in large organizations,” PulteGroup President and CEO Ryan Marshall said in a press release. “Kevin has proven abilities in building outstanding teams and developing cultures that value and respect people and that can attract the best talent.”
Before BlueLinx and Extended Stay, Henry held increasingly senior human resource positions at Snyder-Lance Inc., Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated and Nationwide Credit. A graduate of Cornell University with a bachelor’s degree in industrial labor relations, he also serves on the board of directors of Saia Inc. and the board of advisors for the African American Leadership Academy of Charlotte.
“I am looking forward to working with Ryan, the PulteGroup team and the company’s dedicated human resources colleagues to continue making PulteGroup the best place to work for the 6,000-plus employees building their careers here,” Henry said.
