KRIS HANGERSENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, HUMAN RESOURCES AND ADMINISTRATION
In 1994, Kris Hanger – equipped with a BA in economics and several years in the legal and relocation fields – joined Altair Global. She has held HR positions at varying levels and has been responsible for operations, quality, and training over the past 22 years. She has proved she has the ability and dedication to do this job exceptionally well, and today, she is our Senior Vice President of Human Resources & Administration and a shareholder in the company.
Kris expertly organizes our global human resources from China to California; manages our worldwide facilities; oversees internal team member communications; leads Altair’s charitable activities; and administers our company-wide policies – all while ensuring we maintain our unique culture. Kris’ job is hard, but she does it skillfully because of who she is inside and outside of the workplace.
Kris is described by friends as an incredible hostess whose dinner parties rival Martha Stewart’s. She has a passion for interior design, transforming homes, and putting her “architectural” skills to work for fellow team members. She spends a lot of her time outside of work taking care of her family – a characteristic that translates perfectly into her responsibilities at Altair Global. Kris has a keen eye for design, organization, and space; she can interact with anyone from anywhere; and she genuinely cares about people and the processes that impact them. These are the qualities you want in your HR leader, and we’re lucky to have her at Altair Global.
