HILLSBORO, ORE. – Willamette Dental Group announces the promotion of Kris Holgerson to the position of Vice President of Human Resources, effective October 1, 2017. Previously serving as Employee Relations Manager at Willamette Dental Group, Holgerson will oversee departments of Talent Acquisition, Employee Compensation, Employee Benefits, and Employee Relations in the new position at the company. In addition, she will take a seat on the Willamette Dental Group Senior Management Team under Chairman, President and CEO, Dr. Eugene Skourtes.  

"Willamette Dental Group is very much my family, and I am mindful of our commitment to employees and their own families at home,” says Holgerson. She continues, “When I started at Willamette Dental Group in 1994, we had just begun expanding into Washington State. Today, at nearly 1,400 employees across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, we continue to strategically grow. I look forward to continuing to build our Human Resources infrastructure to support this growth."

Elena Blaga, Senior Director of Human Resources & Strategic Analytics at Willamette Dental Group, remarks “Kris Holgerson is a great listener and compassionate advocate for employees that looks for win-win resolutions to any problem.”  Blaga continues, “She calls herself a minimalist, but that is not the case when she shows care for employees.” Holgerson, a graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Communication, plans to remain rooted in the company culture and people despite what her new title could imply. As she has done for the past several years, she plans to continue personal visits at Willamette Dental Group’s 52 offices throughout the Pacific Northwest.
