Atmus Filtration Technologies Inc. has appointed Renee Swan as Chief People Officer, reporting to Atmus’ CEO Steph Disher, effective August 14. Swan replaces Mark Osowick who has led Atmus Human Resources and corporate responsibility and will remain with Atmus in an advisory role to ensure a smooth transition in leadership. In this role, Swan will join the Atmus Leadership Team.
“A decisive and collaborative leader, Renee has a proven track record of building and integrating teams across global organizations to achieve business results,” shares Steph Disher, President and CEO of Atmus. “She is joining us at an important time in our company’s 65-year history. Following our Initial Public Offering in May of 2023, Atmus has set out to deliver on its purpose of ‘creating a better future by protecting what is important,’ and Renee’s experience with companies during times of transformation positions her well to help us on our journey.”
Swan most recently served as Vice President of Human Resources at L3Harris’ Communications System division, where she effectively integrated legacy L3 and Harris organizations. Included in her work was the successful definition of the organization’s culture and operating model, establishment of the organizational structure, and assessment and selection of the executive leadership team to manage the newly formed business comprised of 9,000 employees. Prior to L3Harris, Swan held roles of increasing seniority at Honeywell International and credits this time as building best practice capability across all human resources disciplines and establishing what it looks like to deliver excellence for people.
A lifelong learner, her two decades of experience spans all human resources disciplines, including workforce planning, talent management, talent acquisition, labor relations, change management and total rewards. Having started her career with Eaton Corporation, Swan gained a deep appreciation for manufacturing operations that still lives with her today.
“Renee is a caring professional, a trait that is at the center of the culture we are building at Atmus,” adds Disher. “I am excited to work alongside a leader of Renee’s caliber and experience as we foster a culture where all Atmus employees can thrive and contribute to our purpose.”
Swan is a champion of diversity and inclusion initiatives, whether increasing representation of women and people of color in executive positions or encouraging overall employee engagement in diversity programs.
“I am thrilled to join the Atmus team during this exciting time!” shared Swan. “By shaping the company’s culture and focusing on talent, we can deliver on our future business success. I look forward to advancing the company’s HR strategy with the talented team at Atmus.”
Swan holds a Master of Human Resources from Cornell University, a Master in Business Administration from Point Park University, and a Bachelor of Arts in communication from the University of Pittsburgh.
