CMS Energy Announces Leadership Changes Focused on World-Class Performance, Workforce
With a focus on world-class performance and workforce development, CMS Energy announced two new senior vice presidents for the company.
The moves are the result of the upcoming April 1 retirement of John Butler, CMS Energy's senior vice president of human resources and shared services since 2006.
- Cathy Hendrian, vice president of human resources, will be named senior vice president of human resources. Hendrian was named vice president in 2015 and has responsibility for the human resources function, including employee benefits, compensation, organization and workforce development, diversity, equal employment opportunity, workforce relations, labor relations and all human resources services for more than 7,300 CMS Energy and Consumers Energy employees. Hendrian joined Consumers Energy in 2002 and served in various strategy and workforce development leadership roles prior to 2015.
- Jean-Francois (JF) Brossoit, vice president of transformation and shared services, will be named senior vice president of transformation and shared services. He is responsible for the Company's lean management office, as well as supply chain, corporate safety and health, fleet, facilities, emergency management, real estate and general services. Brossoit joined the Company in late 2016. He previously served as vice president, manufacturing operation at United Technologies - Climate, Control and Security (UTC) in Jupiter, Fla. Prior to joining UTC in 2006, he served in several management roles at General Motors Corp.
"John has been a dedicated leader for the entire workforce, putting employee wellbeing first - both personally and professionally," said Patti Poppe, president and chief executive officer. "We thank him for his unwavering dedication to the Company and know our employees, customers and investors are in good hands with Cathy and JF taking over these critical business functions."
