June 9, 2023 – Cara Herzog, vice-president of diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) at Southwire has been named chief DEI officer, reporting directly to president and CEO, Rich Stinson.

“Viewing DEI as a function of the business and emphasizing our efforts at the executive level show that we are truly committed to diversifying ourselves commercially, and creating a more equitable workplace experience,” said Herzog.

Herzog began her career at Southwire in 2014 as a training specialist, and held many roles within the company’s People & Culture team before stepping into her current position.

“Research has proven that companies are more engaged, innovative, productive and profitable when they lead with DEI,” said Fernando Esquivel, executive vice-president and chief people & culture officer. “We want to be an employer of choice, to attract, retain and develop talent and help team members feel equipped to do their best work every single day.”
