FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Feb. 18, 2019

Carestream Dental believes one of its greatest assets—in addition to its innovative products and the thriving oral healthcare industry—is its employees. To help manage and develop its global workforce, Carestream Dental has appointed Suzanne Hough as its new chief human resources officer (CHRO).

In this role, Suzanne will act as the strategic advisor on global human capital and human resources directives and initiatives for the company. This includes talent management, succession planning, organizational and performance management, training and development and compensation. 

Hough most recently served as CHRO for Hodges-Mace, a provider of employee benefits communication and custom enrollment services to large US employers. While there, she was responsible for leading all aspects of the human resource function. In particular, Suzanne placed a significant emphasis on promoting internal development and driving employee engagement and organization core values. Prior to leading the human resources department at Hodges-Mace, Suzanne served as a senior HR leader for Citi and Sun Microsystems, Inc.

“I am confident that Suzanne’s background and strengths will make her an asset to Carestream Dental, and I know she shares Carestream Dental’s goal in building a positive company culture across our many offices,” Lisa Ashby, CEO, Carestream Dental, said.

Hough is an active member of the Human Resources Leadership Forum (HRLF) and holds a master’s degree in industrial and labor relations with a concentration in human resource management studies from Cornell University and a Bachelor of Science in human development and social policy from Northwestern University.
