Director of human resources

With more than 15 years of experience in senior HR roles in both early-stage and global corporate environments, Anna Crane knows how important solid HR foundations are to any business. Since joining lighting specialist Lumenix, her focus has been on both building a solid foundation and introducing innovative initiatives to support the growth of the business.

She started by working to strengthen existing practices in relation to HR systems, policies, compensation and benefits, and talent acquisition. Since then, Crane and the management team have been able to deliver a consistent message to employees and also hear their feedback in a thoughtful manner. In 2017, Crane focused on how the company can adapt to its evolving workforce. Lumenix expects to accelerate its growth plans in 2018, which means Crane will be working to preserve the company culture among existing staff while also ensuring buy-in from new employees.
