Black Hills Corp. has named Jennifer C. Landis senior vice president and chief human resources officer.
She will replace Robert A. Myers, who is retiring.
Myers, set to step down April 1, joined the company in 2008, bringing more than three decades of Fortune 500 experience to the role, according to a press release.
Black Hills Chairman and CEO David Emery lauded Myers’s tenure for creating an inviting culture for the firm’s nearly 3,000 workers.
“Throughout, he was a key organizational architect, ensuring we have the people, tools and focus needed to make the most of our talent, allowing them to continue delivering valued service to our customers,” Emery said. “Bob has been a dynamic leader and valued partner to all of us. We will miss him and wish him all the best."
Landis, who will directly report to Emery, brings 15 years of in-house experience to her role. She earned a master’s degree in global human resources development from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
“Jennifer has proven herself to be a dynamic, skilled and energetic human resources leader," Emery said. "She played a critical role in the successful integration of our workforce as we've grown, including recent acquisition and integration efforts. We look forward to her building on our success in creating a great place for our employees to work."
Black Hills, which provides the energy needs of over 1 million customers across eight states, is headquartered in Rapid City, Iowa.
