PARIC Corporation has strengthened their Executive Leadership Team by adding two of the organization’s more experienced senior leaders – Vice President of Preconstruction Leticia Lago and Chief People Officer Christie Judd.
The seven-person Executive Leadership Team sets the strategic vision of the organization and the tone for working with employees, customers, subcontractors and vendors and for evaluating the company’s performance against all goals.
Lago has 28 years of construction experience and has been responsible for overseeing all preconstruction work since long-time manager Becky Wall retired earlier this year. Lago earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at Brazil’s Universidade Federal do Parana.
She is a LEED accredited professional and a Design-Build accredited professional. Her volunteer work as a strong advocate for minorities and women in construction has been recognized by the St. Louis Council of Construction Consumers with their Diversity Excellence and Advocacy Award.
Judd’s role as Chief People Officer is a new position. A 10-year employee, she formerly served as PARIC’s vice president for human resources, where she implemented a two-year leadership development and customized training program to provide the company’s managers with tools to lead a successful team. She has earned certification as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and as a Certified Professional (CP) with the Society of Human Resource Management. Her previous work experience was with SSM Health.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in organizational communications at California State University – Sacramento. Active in the community, she volunteers her time with the Southside Early Childhood Center as well as supporting the Walnut Park revitalization efforts through PARIC.
