Alexis Sherman joins the Human Resource Team

July 8th, 2019 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA – Purolite is excited to welcome Alexis Sherman to the Purolite USA Team! Alexis comes to Purolite from Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, and will function as the new Human Resources Manager for the G-street Plant and Bala-Cynwyd Headquarters. In this new position, Alexis will report to Warner Jarnagin, Plant Director.

Alexis found Purolite through a recruitment agency, who reached out to her. She interviewed with a few members of the management team, before deciding that Purolite was a great match for herself. When considering a new position, Alexis was searching for an opportunity to have an impact on the overall environment of her new workplace, a chance to be a partner in operation with the overall success of the plant, and the support of staff within the workplace. Some of her responsibilities at Purolite will include planning employee engagement activities, improving workspace relations, and managing Purolite’s benefits program.

Alexis prefers small office environments where she has the opportunity to meet everyone she works with. She hopes employees will appreciate her positive energy, openness, and level of interest and engagement in their needs. She considers her specialty to be communication skills. “In an HR role, it is my job to bridge the gap between employees and employers and be the medium through which everyone will have their needs met. Part of successfully accomplishing this is being able to talk and listen to everyone involved and navigate the situation – two skills that I am well versed at from my time spent in HR,” she expands.

Alexis attended State University of New York (SUNY), located in Geneseo, New York. There, she majored in Communications, Interpersonal and Organizational. She also holds a Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) certification. Alexis is able to use Microsoft Office Suite, SAP, and Oracle platforms. Before coming to Purolite, Alexis worked for a large construction company as Human Resources Manager.

Outside of work, Alexis enjoys spending time with her family. Having recently moved to Gladwyne with her husband and 4-year-old son, she enjoys making new friends and exploring the area. One of the highlights of her new home is a hiking trail located directly across the street. Her favorite food is Italian food, and she will soon be vacationing to Italy. Alexis mentions being motivated by challenges, finding solutions, and being a part of a team and process. She enjoys having an opportunity to help others in her role within Human Resources.

On joining the company, Alexis would like us to know, “I am grateful for the opportunity to join the Purolite team, and look forward to meeting and supporting everyone here!”

Welcome to the team Alexis, we are excited to have you!
