Heather Hakanen Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

It is with mixed emotions that I announce that Heather Hakanen has resigned her position on the Organizational Effectiveness team effective June 30, 2017.  During her time on the OE team, Heather has been an instrumental partner.  From managing the ESC space to implementing process improvements around the office, Heather is a consummate professional in every aspect.  Please join me in wishing Heather best wishes in all future endeavors and thanking her for his many contributions to our department.

We will look to fill Heather’s role in the near future.  If you are interested in the position, please reach out to Ann Moran or me for further details.

All my best,
