Awards recognize C-level executives for contributions to the Denver region
Crocs -Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer, Shannon Sisler, was honored by the Denver Business Journal in their annual C-Suite awards, which recognize outstanding C-level executives for their invaluable contributions to the Denver region.
“Organizations are only as great as the people within them, and under Shannon’s leadership, Crocs has brought in the very best to put Crocs in a position to perform now and in the long term,” said Crocs President and CEO Andrew Rees. “Crocs’ results are a testament to her success.”
The annual awards take on new meaning this year, with unprecedented business challenges making C-suite leadership and execution more critical than ever. The judging committee evaluated hundreds of applications for individual and organizational accomplishments, community involvement, contributions to management, and innovation within their fields, among other factors. To qualify, executives’ companies must have a significant presence in the Denver metro area (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties).
Joining Crocs in 2017, Shannon has accomplished much, but 2020 has been a year of exceptional personal and professional growth. The global pandemic ushered in unprecedented health and safety challenges, and Shannon implemented numerous guidelines and procedures to keep employees safe and productive. At the same time, Shannon led the company’s move to a new global corporate headquarters in Broomfield, which opened in May. Shannon’s newest task is to lead the buildout of a second distribution center in Ohio that will bring another 400-500 new employees to the area.
The Denver Business Journal will host the C-Suite Virtual Awards Celebration on Monday, September 21 to recognize the accomplishments of the award winners. They will also be profiled in a special section in DBJ’s September 11, 2020 edition.
