Husky Leadership Team Expands with Addition of HR Professional

Husky Corporation has added Kate Fenlon to its leadership team as Human Resources Manager. Fenlon brings a wealth of human resources management experience in a variety of industries to her new role at Husky Corporation,a leading manufacturer of fuel dispensing products which has added several operating divisions in related industries in recent years 
The company has seen revenue quadruple, a trend that coincides with the acquisition strategy. Since 2010, the company has added BJE Oil and Lube Products, Hewitt Aviation Fueling Products, and S.U.R.&R. Vehicle Fluid Line Repair Solutions. Additionally, the company offers Enevo Logistics Optimization systems and Roman Seliger Liquid Loading Arms.

Kate Fenlon Named Human Resources Manager at Husky Corporation

“I chose Husky over other potential employers because they have been growing year over year, both organically and through acquisitions. And they have no plans to stop. So, this provides a unique opportunity to grow with the company,” Fenlon said. “This is a great company that takes really good care of their employees.”  
“As we continue to grow, we need a great team to create and support that growth.  While we have had a person in the HR role for years, it was a position with other responsibilities,” said Husky Executive Vice President Brad Baker. “Creating a full-time HR position will provide focus and dedication to personal development, while allowing time to advocate individually for everyone on the team.”
As she learns about the company to fully develop the HR department, Fenlon has been impressed with many programs the company has in place for employees.  She said a key factor about Husky is the company culture, which she said was validated in initial meetings with employees.
“I asked a few survey questions about Husky. Time and time again, I saw reasons they love the company: The family environment, the benefits, the pay, the time off, and great leadership. Sometimes an outsider has a different perspective. But they see the things that I see. It’s good that sentiment carries over to tenured employees,” Fenlon said.
Fenlon most recently was HR Generalist at McCallum Place Eating Disorder Centers. She previously served as Human Resource Manager at Lowe’s Home Improvement, Human Resource Manager for Vitek Solution Inc, Corporate Concierge for Spartech Corporation, and Talent & Communication Specialist with Vi-Jon. Fenlon is a certified Professional in Human Resource (PHR) and Certified Paralegal (CP) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Legal Studies from Webster University.
Fenlon expects to learn all she can about Husky, by taking full advantage of hands-on training the company provides about its manufacturing operations and reviewing existing personnel procedures, then decide what’s best for the company going forward. She said a strong sign of a growing company is investment in new people who can bring new perspectives.

“Those previous roles helped prepare me to evaluate what would be best here,” Fenlon said. “They are very concerned about making sure that everyone who comes in the door will help retain this family-oriented environment, no matter how big they get. HR will have a big impact on those coming through the door,” Fenlon said.
