Suddath in Jacksonville has announced the appointment of Heather McBride-Morse as its new chief people officer succeeding Elizabeth Spradley, who is retiring after 31 years on the Suddath team.
Heather has 20 years of experience having helped organisations to grow, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions. The company said she has a passion for creating a top-tier employee experience and a signature motto of ‘making Monday the best day of the week’.
Most recently, Heather was the vice president of human resources at Fiserv, a global financial technology firm. Before that, she worked in human resources at several premier global Fortune 500 organisations, including Raymond James Financial, Jabil Circuit, Honeywell and Eaton.
Speaking of Elizabeth Spradley, who has been with the company since 1988, Michael Brannigan, President and CEO of The Suddath Companies said: ““Elizabeth has been instrumental in developing Suddath’s culture and employee experience. Through Suddath’s growth and change over the years, Elizabeth has been a constant, keeping our employees engaged, productive and happy. We are grateful for all her contributions, as well as for her cheerful personality. Her presence will be greatly missed.”
He added that although Elizabeth left large shoes to fill, he is confident that Heather will transition into the role seamlessly.
