S.R. Smith Welcomes New VP of Human Resources

180one congratulates S.R. Smith on the recent appointment of Kirsten Alvares as the new Vice President of Human Resources. For more than 85 years, S.R. Smith has had a singular focus: Create products that make the pool experience better for both swimmers and owners.  If it involves a pool, chances are they’ve “seen it” and if there’s a way to improve, they’ll find it. They were the first to manufacture diving boards on a commercial scale the first to focus on salt-friendly products.

Receiving her BA degree in English from Portland State University, Kirsten is an accomplished human resource leader with over 20 years of experience in the field. Most recently she was the VP of Human Resources at Gerber, here in Portland, where she was responsible for the administration, interpretation and development of all Gerber HR practices, policies, plans and procedures.

180one enjoyed partnering with S.R. Smith on this important VP search and we wish Kirsten all the best as she joins the team!
