California’s massive wildfires over the past year have highlighted that many residents were under-insured – and an insurance expert believes several factors are to blame.
The Plexus Groupe, an innovative, client-focused insurance brokerage and risk management consulting firm, has hired Kari Fredrick as Vice President of Human Resources.
Fredrick brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in human resources, said Matthew McKenna, Chief Financial Officer of The Plexus Groupe.
“Kari’s expertise is in developing and implementing strategic human resource initiatives that will ultimately help make our already thriving company the best workplace possible for our associates,” McKenna said.
Fredrick earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and a master’s degree from Roosevelt University in human resources management. She then attended Argosy University to earn a doctorate degree in business administration and holds the SHRM Senior Certified Professional credentials for HR.
Fredrick spent the last 14 years working in the manufacturing industry and now looks forward to showcasing her skills in the insurance industry with The Plexus Groupe.
“It is an honor to join the Plexus team,” Fredrick said. “I am excited to visit each office and become part of the culture of this great company.”
