Energetics bids a fond farewell to Human Resources (HR) Director Trixie Glasgow after three years of service, and extends a warm welcome to her replacement Edward (Ed) Turner.
Ms. Glasgow began her career in the HR industry more than 32 years ago, working with several government contracting companies. Following a brief three-month retirement from her prior job as Vice President of Human Resources and Administration for JUPITER Corporation of Wheaton, Maryland, she accepted a position as Human Resources Director for Energetics at the recommendation of her former co-worker, Vice President Marty Martinez. After serving in the capacity of a full-time consultant for five months, Ms. Glasgow agreed to become a permanent employee.
Energetics President Nancy Margolis praised Ms. Glasgow for her faithful service to the company.
“Trixie has been a truly great asset for Energetics. Her hard work and professionalism have helped make Energetics the positive workplace that it is and thus contributed to our company’s success,” said Ms. Margolis. “We will all miss her greatly!”
Ms. Glasgow says her best memories at Energetics include the collaborative approach to management employed by Margolis, the vice presidents, and the VSE HR team.
“I will miss all the one-on-one meetings and social gatherings that allowed me get to know everyone on a personal level,” said Ms. Glasgow. “And, of course, the wonderful staff, especially my direct reports with whom I had the pleasure of working each day.”
Though she is retiring, Ms. Glasgow will continue her involvement with the Society for Human Resource Management through conferences, and plans to do some writing and motivational speaking. She also plans to learn French and Spanish and hopes to become fluent in both.
The new HR director, Ed Turner, joined VSE in February 2011 and has assisted corporate HR and the Federal Group with various issues. Most recently, Mr. Turner served as the interim director of employee relations, where he and his team resolved issues of employee misconduct, performance management, sexual harassment charges, and other sensitive matters.
Mr. Turner is excited to begin his work and continue to improve Energetics.
“I look forward to meeting and working with the employees of Energetics and continuing to provide the high-level HR support that many of them have grown accustom to receiving,” said Mr. Turner. My goal is to help set Energetics on a path to ‘Employer of Choice’ distinction, where we are seen as a place that people love to work, grow their careers, and be a part of the business’ success.”
Mr. Turner has more than 20 years of HR experience in international recruitment, executive search, employee relations, HR development, Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employment planning, diversity, administration, career counseling, employee training and development, benefits analysis, and compensation. He has more than 10 years of international development experience working with faith-based organizations and governments to strengthen the health, education, and social capacity of people in East Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America.
