MEET THE TEAM: Claire McCrary | Director of Human Resources

Last Updated On Jul 21, 2021

A psychologist, peacemaker, lawyer, teacher, and spreadsheet master walk into a room…

 

While this isn't the opening to a great joke, it is a typical moment in the day and life of PacTec's Director of Human Resources, Claire McCrary. An avid planner, Claire schedules her workday to ensure that everything on her list makes it to the "checked" status; however, when that unexpected curveball is pitched, she steps up to the plate and is a homerun hitter! Recently Claire directed PacTec's annual open enrollment and benefits fair all while finalizing our annual affirmative action plan analysis. If that's not a jack of all trades, I don't know what is.

PacTec's progress would not be possible without the incredible members of #teampactec. As we continue our MEET THE TEAM series of spotlights, we want to introduce one of our behind-the-scenes heroes, Amanda Roussel. Very little of what gets produced at PacTec happens without first crossing Amanda's desk, whose business card reads Mechanical Designer, mainly because we didn't have space to put all her true titles. 😉
