Reconomy has further strengthened its executive management team by promoting Lyndsey Denning, currently Head of HR, to Director of Group HR and appointing her to the operating board.

Joining Reconomy in 2013, initially as HR & Training Manager, Lyndsey developed and established the HR function and has been fundamental in the successful growth of the business over the subsequent years. During her time with Reconomy, Lyndsey has launched an accredited leadership and management development programme, an executive development programme for the senior team and established CIWM and ICS accredited training for customer service colleagues.

Lyndsey has also established a successful in-house Talent Acquisition function, delivered four internship programmes and led on all people matters relating to M&A activity, welcoming hundreds of new colleagues to the Reconomy group. Lyndsey’s new role will see her drive key aspects of the people strategy, such as digitisation and automation through new HR systems and processes, as well as overseeing initiatives to attract, retain and develop the best talent in the industry.

Lyndsey has worked in HR for 14 years, spending 7 years working at a PLC in the leisure and hospitality industry as a Regional HR Manager prior to arriving at Reconomy. She is fully CIPD qualified with an MA in HR Management.
