ERIKS North America appoints new head of HR

ERIKS North America has appointed Annette Camuso-Sarsfield, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, as its chief human resources officer. 

With more than 25 years of senior leadership experience, Camuso-Sarsfield is a strategic human resources executive and proactive business partner. She has a strong track record of providing vision and counsel to senior leaders as well as successfully steering organizations to always act in the best interest of its employees, customers and the environment.

"We could not be happier to welcome Annette to the ERIKS NA team," said Jeff Crane, CEO of ERIKS North America. "A strategic goal of our organization is to be an Employer of Choice. To do this, we will build a company that attracts the best talent and creates a challenging and diverse environment. ERIKS NA will become an organization that develops and retains its people, enabling our business's long-term, profitable growth. Annette is uniquely qualified to lead us in this journey, and we are honored to have her."

Camuso-Sarsfield was most recently the chief human resources officer at A. Stucki Company, a railroad manufacturing company in Pittsburgh where she focused on developing, integrating and executing human resource strategy in support of the overall business plan and strategic direction. Before that role, she served as chief human resources officer for PlayPower, Inc., a private-equity sponsored global manufacturer and distributor of commercial grade recreational equipment.

At ERIKS North America, she will be guiding its human resources team through a transition out of ERIKS Global, which sold the North American division in March 2022. ERIKS North America will concentrate on becoming a world class, employee-centric employer.

“A culture of employee engagement, development, and life/work integration is what makes a company a great place to work for great employees," said Camuso-Sarsfield. "ERIKS North America is committed to this, and I am excited to be a part of a dynamic team focusing on safety, continuous improvement, and 'best in class' initiatives, to better serve both our internal, and external, customers.”
