TVPPA has named Bernadette Martin manager of Human Resources and Administrative Services.

Martin comes to TVPPA after a career of more than 25 years at Dalton, GA-based Beaulieu Group LLC, the onetime flooring-industry giant that employed approximately 12,000 at its peak. She spent her last eight years there as senior director of Employee Services, during which time she planned, implemented and administered an array of benefit programs. Prior to that role, she served as director of Human Resources.

“Human Resources is a far more complex discipline than it once was, and it’s changing constantly,” said TVPPA Executive Vice President Betsey Kirk McCall. “Bernadette has been in that world; she knows where the hazards are and doesn’t have to guess at the right way forward in a given situation. She’s a very welcome addition to our team.”

Martin, whose first day at TVPPA was April 23, earned her undergraduate degree in business management at Middle Tennessee State University.
