(Jacksonville, Fla.; Oct. 15, 2003) – Loyda Rivera has been promoted to director, international human resources for Crowley Maritime Corporation. With Crowley’s growing presence in Central America and other non-US based locations, Rivera’s responsibilities have expanded, as has her scope of service. She is responsible for overseeing international employee human resources related activities to ensure compliance with local laws and company policies.
Rivera joined Crowley in 1981 in the company’s Puerto Rico office. Since then, she has held positions of increasing responsibility within the human resources department including her most recent position as international human resources manager. In 1987, Rivera relocated to Jacksonville, Fla., where she remains domiciled following her promotion. She will report to Susan Rodgers, vice president of human resources.
In her 22 years with Crowley, Rivera has successfully administered the company’s expatriate program, presented an employee and supervisory training program to the company’s Central and South American employees, and implemented the company’s stateside programs such as the awards programs, performance evaluations, insurance, policies and procedures and broadbanding compensation structure internationally.
“Loyda has been instrumental in developing and implementing company programs in our international offices,” Rodgers said. “She has served to integrate our international employees into our corporate culture and continues to develop programs and initiate employee relations strategies in those offices. She has been recognized with various company awards for doing such.”
Rivera holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Puerto Rico.
