Lucy Wander-Perna, President, has over 20 years experience as a human resources professional in a variety of positions in Fortune 200 companies.
Prior to consulting, Lucy spent almost twelve years in the entertainment industry that began when she joined Columbia Pictures Entertainment (CPE), a division of the Coca-Cola Company, as Vice President of Human Resources for their West Coast operations.
Shortly after the company's acquisition by Sony, she was promoted to Senior Vice President with responsibility for worldwide human resources for Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE).
During her tenure she was responsible for the introduction of a wide range of programs designed to promote the well being of employees and to encourage them to achieve their full potential. This included the complete overhaul and restructuring of the benefits package, the update and redesign of the compensation structure and incentive programs, addition of an on-site childcare facility, upgraded training and recruitment programs, and the development and launch of the company's business driven diversity program, the first in the industry.
Additionally, Lucy managed several divisional reorganizations, business acquisitions and divestitures as well as implementing a reengineering assessment and restructuring of the HR function resulting in a more efficient department focused on value-added activities and the outsourcing of selected administrative functions.
Prior to her entertainment industry experience she held a series of positions of increasing responsibility during more than twelve years at Richardson-Vicks, Inc. (RVI), which became a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble. These included Manager of International Compensation & Benefits for the Richardson-Merrill Inc. pharmaceutical division, Director of Human Resources for the start-up of the Natural Care Products Division, and Director of Human Resources for the Vidal Sassoon Division.
