Focus On Business: Rodney Vinegar on Human Resources

May 2, 2016

During his 18-year professional career, Rodney Vinegar has been responsible for recruitment, training, professional development, human resources leadership, and labor relations with such global companies as UBS Investment Bank, Colgate-Palmolive, Pepsi and Scripps Network Interactive.  Rodney recently returned from New York to his home state of Kentucky and joined Tom Martin to discuss some HR issues common in today’s workplace.

As a child growing up in Georgia, notions of someday becoming an engineer never occurred to Dianne Leveridge.  But the girl who didn’t think she was good at math went on to earn first a master’s degree, and then a PhD in civil engineering and is now guiding other smart young women to act on their true professional talents and ambitions. Dr. Leveridge is now Director of Technical Programs for the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.  She shared her journey with Tom Martin.
