Colby-Sawyer College Elects New Member to Board of Trustees

Colby-Sawyer College's Board of Trustees has elected John Malanowski of Hanover, N.H., as a member of the Board to serve a three-year term that begins immediately.

Malanowski earned a Bachelor of Science degree, magna cum laude, in criminal justice from State University of New York at Buffalo, and a master's degree in industrial and labor relations from Michigan State University.

He is the chief human resource officer for Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in Lebanon, N.H. In this role, he is responsible for leading the overall strategic direction, leadership and management of human resources and services at DHMC. Prior to joining DHMC this February, Malanowski was the vice president of human resources for North Atlantic Consumer Products for Kimberly-Clark Corporation. In this role, he had direct responsibility for the delivery of human capital strategies and programs for the company's $10 billion North Atlantic Personal Care and Family Care businesses, and the company's U.S., Canadian and European consumer sales forces, marketing services, global supply chain organizations and Kimberly-Clark's Global Nonwovens businesses. Before joining Kimberly-Clark Corporation in 2010, Malanowski was the vice president of human resource operations for Raytheon Company. His global leadership experience also includes serving in senior human resources roles at Fidelity Investments and Engage Media, where he was the chief human resource officer for the ground-breaking publically traded Internet technology company.

Malanowski is formerly the vice chair of ThedaCare's Board of Trustees, a regional health care system in Northeast Wisconsin. He is a member of Michigan State University's School of Human Resources and Labor Relations Advisory Board and Michigan State University's ADVANCE grant Advancing Diversity through the Alignment of Policies and Practices (ADAPP) External Advisory Board. He is a frequent speaker on subjects including human capital strategies and competencies, talent acquisition, globalization, leadership and talent development, and acquisition integration. His commentaries have been featured in books and professional journals. He speaks regularly at universities and professional association meetings.

Earlier this summer, the board elected Pamela Stanley Bright '61, Deborah L. Coffin '76, Gretchen Richter Massey '82 and Margaret V. Mulley to serve a three-year term, and Jonathan J. Pappalardo '10, who will serve a one-year term as a Winton-Black Trustee, a distinction given to alumni who have graduated between three and nine years prior to election.
