Cathy Lindfors, Verano Director of Human Resources, will be developing Verano’s HR program from the ground up, where she will utilize her in-depth knowledge of HR law and collaborative problem-solving approach to develop mutually agreeable solutions. She is dedicated to making sure processes are followed and employees are supported from the moment they are hired until they retire. Cathy brings a wealth of experience in all aspects of human resources for companies large and small across a variety of industries, including manufacturing, retail, professional services, property management, B2B and B2C. She is proud to have overseen the professional growth of thousands of employees by creating training, mentoring and professional certification programs that enable them to move up and achieve their professional goals. She continues this tradition by spearheading efforts for Verano to become the first company in the industry to have all employees certified as Green Flower cannabis professionals.
She’s known as a person who will roll up her sleeves to handle any role, which she did skillfully as the HR manager for numerous client companies from start-ups to 2700-employee firms, where she advised as well as worked hands-on with payroll, benefits, unemployment, employee relations, training and more. She is intent on making a difference in the lives of employees and in the community through her volunteer work. She marries her passions for HR and service by participating in charitable programs and volunteer activities both inside and outside the workplace, and is excited to develop and lead Verano’s community service program.
