OSAE Member Tracy Vanneman, CAE Named SIOP Executive Director

She has worked for the organization in a variety of roles

As new Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) President Georgia Chao and the new members of the Executive Board take office, the SIOP Administrative Office (AO) staff officially welcomes their new leader, as well.

OSAE Member Tracy Vanneman, CAE, was selected as the new SIOP executive director. Selection Advisory Group Chairs Fred Oswald and Will Shepherd, assisted by Alex Alonso, Kevin Impelman, Rich Klimoski, Deirdre Knapp, Julie Olson-Buchanan and Doug Reynolds, investigated a number of viable candidates over a months long planning and search process. In the end, it was decided that the best person to lead the AO into the future was the person currently serving in the interim capacity. 

The Selection Advisory Group surveyed and interviewed members of the SIOP executive board about the key characteristics needed in an executive director, according to Shepherd. Next, a national recruitment campaign was conducted including advertising in international forums such as LinkedIn as well as specialized employment sites focused on association executives. This resulted in an impressive slate of job candidates from across the country. However, one candidate rose above the rest. Tracy Vanneman stood solidly above the pack with her extensive association management experience, talents, and leadership.
