Nancy Cefalo, a 14-year employee of Mack Molding, has been promoted to human resources director for the company’s three Vermont manufacturing facilities, it was announced today by President Jeff Somple.
“Nancy has served as human resources manager during her entire tenure at Mack and is uniquely qualified for her new role and responsibilities,” says Somple. “Beyond HR experience, she brings a well-rounded background of nursing, organizational management and mediation training to the table. She will be a welcome addition to my staff.”
Cefalo replaces Kevin Dailey, who has served as HR director for 16 years, but has now accepted the new position of VP, human resources, for Southwestern Vermont Health Care (Bennington, Vt.). “Kevin has been on the Board of Trustees of the hospital for several years and has a strong interest in healthcare issues,” adds Somple. “This is a wonderful opportunity for him — we wish him the best in his new and exciting position.”
Before joining Mack, Cefalo worked as a home health nurse for Manchester Health Services, Manchester, Vt., where she established the Maternal Child Health Program for wellness and preventive care. Earlier, she was owner/operator of a family restaurant, where she managed all operations, including human resources.
Cefalo holds an associate’s in nursing from Bunkerhill Community College (Charlestown, Mass.), a certificate in mediation/conflict management from Woodbury College (Montpelier, Vt.), and a bachelor’s in organizational management/psychology from Ashford University (Clinton, Iowa).
Active in the community, she is a member of the board of directors for the Battenkill Valley Health Center in Arlington and past treasurer of the Arlington Area Child Care board of directors. Cefalo is also a member of the Society for Human Resource Management.
Cefalo lives in Arlington, Vt., with her husband, Richard. They are the parents of three adult children and are now enjoying two young grandsons. When she isn’t working, Cefalo enjoys cooking, hiking and bicycling.
