May 23, 2019 – Royer Thompson has expanded its organizational performance and leadership transition practice with the addition of veteran human resources leader Amanda Penney as senior director.
Ms. Penney brings 15 years of human resources leadership to the firm, most recently as director of human resources with private sector company the Shaw Group during a time of business transformation. Before that, she was director of HR at Homburg, a multi-billion dollar real estate investment and development company.
Over her career, Ms. Penney has had leadership oversight for performance management, succession planning, career development, recruitment, compensation, benefits and labor negotiations. With experience throughout Atlantic Canada, she has worked in insurance, real estate, resource and manufacturing sectors and has provided support in multi-generational and unionized environments.
Progressive HR Leader
“Amanda is a progressive human resources leader and a discreet, trusted advisor,” said Kim West, president of Royer Thompson. “Leadership transition and organizational performance are critical to success for companies in 2019. More than ever, organizations are in a constant state of evolution, assessing and developing leaders, retooling skills, restructuring functions and often downsizing or supporting individuals to transition out of an organization and on to their next opportunity.”
Royer Thompson’s practice includes: performance management, restructuring and change management, executive and manager transitions, termination and severance, and succession planning.
“We are committed to helping our clients as they navigate the critical phases of defining and supporting necessary changes within organizations,” said Ms. West. “We believe helping organizations be agile and responsive to changing conditions is an important component of a comprehensive human resources and talent management strategy.”
