V.P. of Human Resources
Katie McKenzie brings a passion for CUI’s internal growth, both in the quality of its hires, and the quality of life for its valuable team members. As CUI grows, Katie’s devotion to maintaining a family, core value driven culture has continued to keep turnover low and the pool of talented applicants deep. She has been integral in assembling a cohesive team with varied skill sets and industry backgrounds, helping CUI make its push into a leadership position within the industry.
Since joining the company in 2002, Katie has reshaped the HR function from the ground up, implementing and improving systems ranging from employee retention, employee relations, benefits programs, and communication and feedback systems. In 2011, Katie rolled out a new community outreach program, called Core Values in Action Outreach Day, which deploys CUI employees out into the community, allowing them to work directly for causes that go far beyond the bottom line.
Katie graduated from George Fox University with a degree in Business Communications, holds a certification in Human Resource Management from Portland State University, and has industry recruiting experience from Maxim Integrated Products.
