Our New Human Resources Management Team
By Deborah (Debbie) Ciccotelli, Vice-President, Strategic Initiatives
There have been many changes in our Human Resources Department in the first quarter of 2020! We now have an amazing new HR leadership team in place, who have both the strong formal HR education and practical hands on experience required to assist us in growing the company, while ensuring that we remain loyal to our cultural values of teamwork, integrity, fairness, compassion and respect.
Sarah Northrup joined ASP as our new Director of Human Resources on March 16, amidst COVID-19 pandemic preparations and response planning; she immediately fit in and supported the organization as if she had been with us for many years.
In her new role, Sarah oversees the day-to-day operations of human resources and acts as a key adviser to the senior leadership team. She also works closely with the human resources team to develop strategy and create a professional, integrated, customer-focused culture within the department and across the organization.
Sarah is an experienced and passionate HR leader who values integrity, respect, hard work and diversity, which makes her a perfect match for the ASP family. As the past HR Director of Sunwing, Sarah managed a team of seven HR Managers and Specialists working with a group of 25,000+ employees in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean, where she was respected as thought leader in human rights, inclusion, diversity and employee engagement. Sarah has extensive experience in HR disciplines within both the Federal and Provincial labour codes and in an aviation environment, as well as in employee/labour relations, recruitment, collective agreement administration, and collective bargaining.
Sarah holds a Human Resources Management Certificate from Ryerson University and she is currently enrolled in Bachelor of Arts at Queen’s University. Sarah has her CHRL Designation, HRPA (CANADA) and SPHR Certification, HRCI (USA) and she has completed numerous HR Training programs including Predictive Index/Talent Optimization, Labour Relations and Workplace Investigation Training.
We are looking forward to continuing to evolve and enhance our HR Department; we are confident that Sarah will be instrumental in shaping our culture and supporting corporate goals by leading and delivering a relevant and influential HR Department.
