Adjustable base supplier Ergomotion, with U.S. headquarters in Santa Barbara, California, is beefing up its human resources department by naming Patricia Cooper to the newly created position director of organizational development.
Cooper most recently was a principal at consulting firm Human Resources Management Solutions. She also was vice president of human resources and organizational development at Suneva Medical, a producer of aesthetics products, and had been vice president of human resources, organizational development and customer service at Denmat Corp., a manufacturer of medical devices.
“As we continue our rapid global growth, we needed a strategic leader who could help us build our human resource assets to support that dynamic expansion,” said Johnny Griggs, chief operating officer. “Patricia brings valuable expertise in organizational development and a wealth of experience with high-growth global organizations.”
