Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC), a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that it has named Lori Hannay vice president and chief human resources officer.
Hannay, age 52, is responsible for managing Interactive Data’s global human resources (HR) organization. She oversees Company-wide strategic and functional initiatives aimed at creating synergies by partnering with the business units to support Interactive Data’s “One Company” approach. Another area of primary focus for Hannay is the enhancement of training programs to promote succession planning and talent retention. Hannay reports directly to Andrew Hajducky, executive vice president and chief financial officer, and is based in the Company’s Bedford, Mass. headquarters.
“In recent years, Interactive Data has grown considerably through acquisitions and organic expansion. Today we are a global company with more than 2,400 employees in numerous offices located throughout the United States, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region,” said Ray D’Arcy president and chief executive officer for Interactive Data. “As we move forward, we remain committed to operating as a single enterprise and a key to this ‘One Company’ approach will be to effectively manage our talented team of employees across all of our businesses and on a global level as we continue to grow. We are pleased to welcome Lori to our team, and we believe that her experience and expertise in managing critical HR functions for a variety of companies will be valuable in supporting the needs of our global business.”
Hannay joins Interactive Data from TRC Companies (NYSE: TRR), an engineering, consulting and construction management company, where she most recently held the role of vice president of human resources. She also served for more than 10 years in vice president positions with international technology firms Enterasys Networks, Inc. and GenRad, Inc., where she helped lead the companies through global business growth initiatives, acquisition-driven integration projects, development of global stock option and performance-based incentive plans, and implementation of global information technology systems. Hannay also has 10 years of experience leading a human resources team as vice president and corporate secretary at First Inter-Bancorp, which was subsequently acquired by First Fidelity.
Hannay succeeds Peg Murphy, vice president of global human resources, in this new role. Murphy will take on a new set of responsibilities primarily focused on recruitment and employee relations and will report directly to Hannay.
