Coast Professional Inc., an ACA International member company in Geneseo, New York, has hired Brent Henderson as the company’s vice president of human resources. A key contributor to achieving major growth across the organization and a member of the operating board, Coast’s vice president of human resources develops recruitment initiatives, creates employee retention plans, and ensures adherence to all state laws and regulations.
With over 25 years of experience, Henderson spent the last few years as the director of human resources at a 250-person industrial construction and fabrication contractor. While there, he oversaw all human resources functions including compliance with strategic industry processes, compensation and benefits, talent acquisition and development, and succession planning. During his career, Henderson has led key initiatives that secured tax credits of over $1 million, reduced turnover by 30% (over the course of one year) and contributed to a 275% revenue increase over the course of two years.
Working primarily from Coast’s East Aurora, New York, office, Henderson will be responsible for establishing department accountabilities, including talent acquisition, staffing, compensation and benefits, and employee engagement. In addition to developing and executing workforce planning initiatives, he will collaborate with Coast’s management team to develop and enforce company policies and industry compliance.
“Brent fully understands the importance of leading a team of HR professionals, which is evident in his decades of experience working in various industries,” said Micah Pulliam, president and chief financial officer at Coast Professional. “He has exemplary leadership skills and a proven record of implementing successful recruiting processes. We are excited to welcome Brent and his experience to the Coast team.”
