Natural Lands announced it has hired Charles Carrier as vice president of human resources, a newly created position. Carrier’s 20-year human resource and corporate finance career runs the gamut from large companies and small, including his own human resources consulting firm.

Previous employment included strategic human resources roles at the Princeton Theological Seminary, Quest Diagnostics, and Genpact, LLC, as well as a corporate finance role at JPMorgan Chase.

In addition to experience attracting top talent, Carrier is passionate about developing the capacity of current staff members. He has developed and delivered training programs on a variety of topics, including management 101 and 102, behavioral interviewing, core competency hiring selection, recruiting, sexual harassment, unconscious bias, and diversity and inclusion.

“Charles joins Natural Lands at an exciting time,” shared Oliver Bass, president. “The pandemic has shifted the way many people think about their jobs, and they are searching for careers that are in line with their values. We look forward to Charles’s fresh perspective and energy as we continue our work to attract top-caliber staff members from diverse backgrounds and to support the talented team already on board.”
