NFI elevates HR veteran to SVP role

Camden-based NFI, a leading supply chain provider with more than 15,000 employees spanning 300 locations throughout North America, said it recently promoted Melissa (Kosmin) Winkelman to senior vice president, human resources. Winkleman started at NFI in 2015 as the vice president, human resource operations and compensation, and has helped to support all field-based startups, acquisitions, compensation, talent and HR operational activities.

In her new role, Winkleman will contribute to the broadening of talent strategies to match NFI’s growth.

“Our people are central to NFI’s overall strategy, and NFI continues to make it a priority to invest in attracting and retaining the best talent,” said Nancy Stefanowicz, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at NFI. “Melissa has been a true partner in growing the HR function at NFI. She has been instrumental in aligning the HR operations teams with the field teams and has had a hand in implementing countless improvements to our programs and policies.”

Winkleman also serves as a board member of the Philadelphia Society of People & Strategy, the senior-level human capital association for exchanging ideas, knowledge and fellowship among the Greater Philadelphia Region’s senior HR and business leaders.
