Imtra appoints new VP of operations, HR director

(NEW BEDFORD, Mass.) — Imtra, a leading manufacturer and importer of solutions and products for the marine, energy and transportation markets, has added to its management team with a promotion and a new hire. Longtime employee Larry Lake has been promoted to vice president of operations and has been appointed to the senior leadership team. In addition, Carissa Deschler has joined Imtra as its first human resources director.

Lake manages several of the teams that impact Imtra’s customers’ experience from start to finish. From customer service and production to shipping and receiving, technical support and warranty coverage, he is responsible for critical areas within Imtra and has worked with several members of these departments for years. In his new position, he is now responsible for the continued growth and success of these important teams.

New to the organization, Deschler has an extensive background in human resources, most recently with Amazon, and will be working with the management team on best practices as the development of an employee-owned company evolves. She has been very helpful early on in assisting Imtra’s management in the hiring process for several positions, revamping of employee policies, and consulting with employee committees that work on programs aimed at improving the daily experiences of all employees.
