Hub Group has appointed Michele McDermott as its first Chief Human Resources Officer.
McDermott, who joined the company on Aug. 19, reports to Chairman and CEO David Yeager and is based at Hub Group's Oak Brook headquarters.
McDermott has nearly 25 years' experience in human resources. Most recently, she was senior vice president of human resources for Assurance Agency in Schaumburg, and previously held senior-level positions at National Express Corp. in Lisle, the second largest student transportation provider in North America.
McDermott earned an MBA, Operations and Finance from DePaul University's Kellstadt Graduate School of Business and a B.S. in Business Administration from Lewis University.
The creation of the CHRO role comes at a time of rapid expansion for Hub Group. The company's customer-focused approach has led to sustained, long-term growth, especially as it continues to innovate with technology to drive a smarter supply chain. To accommodate this growth, Hub Group broke ground on a second building on its Oak Brook headquarters campus earlier this summer to provide much-needed room as it scales to meet growing customer needs.
