The Indiana Chamber of Commerce announced today the 2016 recipient of the Ogletree Deakins Human Resources Professional of the Year award. Lisa Price, executive vice president of human resources at KAR Auction Services in Carmel, was honored during a luncheon at the 52nd Annual Human Resources Conference & Expo at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis.
The HR Professional of the Year award is a statewide recognition given annually to those that provide lasting impact through the implementation of best practices, organization design and effectiveness and accomplishment of the company’s strategic direction.
“Lisa is instrumental in furthering KAR’s overall goal of bringing our various subsidiary companies together under one unified banner and spearheading a common set of employee policies, practices and organizational structure,” praises Don Gottwald, chief operating officer at KAR Auction Services.
“The fact that Lisa is an experienced employment attorney enhances her already stellar HR skillset and makes her invaluable to furthering KAR’s ‘One Company’ vision.”
In 2013, Price switched lanes from exclusively being KAR’s in-house employment counsel to her current human resources position.
