North Canton, Ohio – Visual Edge Technology, Inc., announces another addition to the company’s growing executive leadership team as Melissa Morrison joins the company as the senior vice president of human resources.
Based out of Visual Edge’s North Canton headquarters, Morrison will provide strategic HR leadership, supporting the company’s national network of office and managed IT solutions companies.
“Visual Edge has grown 500% over the past three years,” says Michael Mills, vice president of administration and chief financial officer for Visual Edge Technology, Inc. “Our focus now is to build an infrastructure with a team of executives, like Morrison, with proven expertise supporting large corporations.
Morrison recently worked in a number of HR management roles, with an emphasis on benefits administration and payroll. Prior to joining Visual Edge, Morrison spent 19-years at Myers Industries, Inc., a holding company for plastics manufacturing and distribution companies. She was a key player in several of Myers’ mergers and acquisitions, assisting in due diligence and process standardization.
“I am energized to be joining such a strong, growing company,” says Morrison. “Throughout my career, I have always tried to be the kind of leader that steers the focus away from why we can’t do things to figuring out a way that we can—achieving the priorities that will move the company forward.”
