About Me

Name: Kerri Connaughton

Position: Human Resource Director

Birthdate: May 16th

Why did you start at Denali: I wanted to get my foot in the door with a company and gain experience in Human Resources.   Denali offered me that and I have the opportunity to grow with the company.

Best Experience in the company: The traveling! I went to the Kentucky Derby, Atlantis, Dallas- just to name a few!

What do you like most about working at Denali: Since I moved from a much smaller town in Arkansas to Indianapolis, I did not know a lot of people at all here.
