“I am pleased to expand Karli’s leadership role at the company to encompass our human resources and communications functions,” commented Anne Noonan, Summit Materials president and CEO. “Since her promotion to executive vice president, chief ESG officer and head of investor relations in 2021, Karli has been a true change agent effectively driving the Company’s ESG initiatives and commitments across the business and making sustainability part of our value proposition. I have full confidence that she will bring that same level of transformation and excellence to her leadership of the company’s human resources and communications functions.
