Zeus, the global packaging company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Satterthwaite as Group Head of People and HR Services. 

Lisa’s appointment comes at a time of major growth for Zeus, which now has more than 670 staff across 42 locations in 26 countries. This expansion has been driven by an ambitious acquisition strategy, with recent acquisitions including Limerick Packaging and Aldar Tissues. 

Lisa has more than 25 years of experience in people and HR management, working across Ireland, the UK and internationally. She has managed HR for companies with more than 2,000 people, with experience in the manufacturing, housing and publishing sectors. 

Commenting on Lisa’s appointment, Zeus CEO Keith Ockenden said: “Investment in our staff is at the core of our five-year plan for growth, and we are delighted to have a HR professional of Lisa’s calibre joining us at this time. Zeus reaching its full potential starts with our team reaching theirs, and Lisa will take the lead as we invest in upskilling, improve our people management structures, and integrate teams from across the Zeus family. 

“Zeus has grown through acquisition to become a truly global packaging firm, and we plan to continue expanding in the years ahead. Lisa’s expertise will help us to manage our team as we keep scaling. With a wealth of experience in distribution, service provision and manufacturing on a global level, Lisa has successfully architected and deployed engaging people strategies, working with senior leaders to support the management and development of staff. We are all incredibly excited to have her on board.”

Speaking on her appointment, Lisa said: “Zeus is a company that I have long admired from the outside, and I am excited to join the team at such a crucial moment. With the right plans in place, the challenges that large-scale companies face can become opportunities as legacy systems are replaced with new ones that prioritise and support people and set everyone up for success. 

“From top to bottom, Zeus has an incredible team, and I am excited to work with everyone on building the systems that we need to reach our potential as Zeus continues to grow from strength to strength.”

Lisa holds a BA in Business Administration, an MA in Human Resources and Industrial Relations and is professionally qualified to the highest level in the CIPD. She is also qualified in mental health first aid.
