She will lead the company's human resources team "in all people-focused areas from recruiting and benefits to performance management and career pathing," according to a news release.
Seidel joins Thomas with 17 years of experience as a human resource professional and a track record of contributing to the growth and success of numerous organizations, the release stated. She has worked in various industries including construction, property management and IT services, focusing on areas such as employee relations, talent management benefits administration and professional development.
"When we met Katie, it clicked right away and we're excited to have her on board," said Chris Reid, president of Thomas Construction, in the release. “She brings tremendous experience to us as our director of people and culture.
