Grand Rapids-based industrial technology and electrical firm Feyen Zylstra hired Maureen Walsh as vice president of people and culture.
Walsh will be responsible for leading Feyen Zylstra’s people services team while implementing and advancing strategies around attracting, retaining and developing people and culture.
She also will oversee talent development, performance management and cultural leadership across all FZ’s locations.

Her diverse background and proven track record demonstrate that she understands both the language of HR and the language of business.”
