Senior Vice President, Human Resources
Elizabeth is the keeper and enthusiastic spokesperson for our energetic, team-oriented culture. While Suddath naturally attracts candidates who value hard work, taking care of customers, and supporting each other, it takes more than that to make sure our HR systems and processes put the right job opportunities in front of the right people, from the hiring stage through successful long-term careers.
Elizabeth is responsible for developing and managing benefits strategies that reward our people and help them take care of themselves and their families. She is also charged with managing the policies and programs needed to keep a widely distributed organization operating as one team founded on mutual respect.
Drawing on more than 28 years’ experience, Elizabeth’s areas of responsibility include benefits, compensation, learning and development, employee relations and career services, payroll, records, recruitment and staffing, information management and leadership development. Her career with Suddath started in 1988, and grew quickly as she took on more of its many human resources functions.
She is active in industry associations including the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and serves on the board of directors for Goodwill Industries of North Florida.
Elizabeth holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services from Auburn University. Born and raised in Florida, Elizabeth remains a Southern belle, and likes to think her roots help her relate to people in a warm and welcoming way. In her spare time she loves gardening, working in the yard and overseeing her menagerie of four-legged, furry friends.
