Vice President of People & Culture
We are pleased to welcome a new member to our leadership team. Vanessa White is our new Vice President of People and Culture.
Vanessa is focused on the team member experience and is eager to work alongside our Great People to get a better understanding of their experiences.
“The people and culture part of my work is the part I love and am most passionate about,” says Vanessa. “It’s a great opportunity to really focus in and do some great work.”
Vanessa and her family moved back to her home province of Nova Scotia from Ontario. She was immediately drawn to Shannex because it’s a family-owned business. “Everything in this company is about people – when we care for our Great People, they can then provide great care and Service Excellence to our residents. That excites me about this role,” Vanessa says with a smile.
In this role, Vanessa said she is looking forward to supporting team members in every area of the organization and watching them grow. “There’s nothing better than hearing those stories of people who started with us at a frontline job and worked their way up – and there are more and more opportunities for people to do that here – it’s energizing and exciting!”
