Lanny Friedman joins SACA as our first professional Director of Human Resources, bringing over 25 years of professional experience in the human resources field to the organization. Most recently, she served as Human Resources Business Partner for FOCUS Brands, managing a client base of 750 associates. Lanny attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, where she graduated with a Bachelors in English and Spanish and a Masters in Labor and Employment Relations.
Lanny was inspired to move to Lancaster by her 23-year-old son who first discovered the area while a college student here. Her deceased husband’s passion as a social worker inspired her to give back and give forward to her community and her own experience as a Latina ultimately led her to join SACA.
As a professional member of the leadership team at SACA, Lanny’s day-to-day responsibilities include recruiting, retention, compliance, coaching, and employee engagement. Lanny will also be developing a plan to build up the human resources function at SACA and meet the human capital needs of the organization.
