Direct Connect Logistix Names Christina Turro Chief Human Resources Officer
INDIANAPOLIS (March 2, 2022) – Direct Connect Logistix (“DCL”), announced today that Christina (Tina) Turro has joined the company as chief human resources officer. Turro, who has extensive experience leading human resources processes, will be charged with workforce development, evaluating performance, and building cultural competence.
Previously, Turro served as the executive director of human resources for private equity backed Kinetrex Energy and as human resources manager at Kaman Industrial Technologies.
“We believe Tina will make an excellent addition to the DCL executive team,” DCL CEO Richard Piontek said. “We share a common goal as investors in people and with more than 15 years working in the field, we are confident in Tina’s abilities and dedication to continue building the connection between human resource management and our overall strategic plan.”
Turro, who joined DCL on Feb. 17, will be responsible for all human capital-related matters including talent acquisition, leadership development, strategic change management and driving culture initiatives. She will report to CEO Richard Piontek. Earlier this month, DCL acquired Performance Logistics, located near Salt Lake City, and Turro will also play a lead role in the integration process of the two companies.
“I am excited about joining DCL because of the company’s rich corporate culture and the potential for growth,” Turro said. “I look forward to helping the company manage its human capital plan as we build the business into a national third-party logistics provider, integrate acquisitions, and build a larger team across both regions.”
Turro graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor’s degree In English, Sociology and Criminal Justice. In addition, she holds PHR and SHRM-CP certifications.
