Congratulations to Laura George, Newly Appointed Vice President of Human Resources

JOH is proud to announce the promotion of Laura George to Vice President of Human Resources.

Laura began her career with JOH in 2013. At that time, she had many years of experience in human resources, primarily in higher education. “I was looking for new challenges and opportunities to grow,” Laura said. “When I submitted my resume for an HR position that described the employer as a family-run company, the description proved true. I was struck by the family feel at JOH and the longevity of the careers of the associates. JOH truly is a company that cares.” Laura served as the director of HR at JOH for seven years, building enhanced systems of HR infrastructure to support the employees of JOH.

Responsible for recruitment, employee relations, benefit and compensation planning, and management coaching, the department of Human Resources impacts each and every associate at JOH. Laura remains committed to strengthening HR’s role in collaborating with associates and members of the leadership team and continuing to hire amazing talent to support JOH’s growth and culture.

“Laura’s dedication to her work and our associates is representative of how JOH strives to perform as a company every day,” said John Saidnawey, Chairman & CEO. “We are grateful to have her on our team. Congratulations on this well-deserved promotion.”

Outside of the office, Laura enjoys spending time with her family. Whether playing sports or hiking, outdoor activities are key in ensuring that she and her husband remain present and active in the lives of their four daughters and five grandchildren. Laura can be reached at
