Quicksilver Scientific Promotes Organization Leaders to Key Positions
Promotions expand Quicksilver’s commitment to employee satisfaction, vibrant team culture and radical innovation
Louisville, Colo. (October 19, 2021)–Robust growth over the past 18 months, combined with the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic, has driven significant change within Quicksilver Scientific. As a result, Quicksilver today announces two promotions to newly created positions intended to help guide the company through this dynamic new era and enhance the employee experience. Linda Nielander will assume the role of Executive Vice President, reporting to company founder and CEO Dr. Christopher Shade, and Melanie Parrish will take on the position of Head of People and Culture, reporting to Nielander. Both Nielander and Parrish work out of Quicksilver’s Louisville headquarters.
Nielander is a seasoned business leader who has skillfully managed the Quicksilver marketing and sales teams over the past four years. In her new role as Executive Vice President, she will serve as second in command and report to Dr. Shade, providing guidance to members of the company’s leadership team and performing the responsibilities of President when Dr. Shade is unavailable. Nielander’s unique blend of business skills and deep industry savvy stems from her experience at Quicksilver and other notable companies like ASICS, AIRWALK, and Qwest. Her well-established management excellence and visionary leadership will help her guide all Quicksilver divisions towards achieving their strategic goals.
“As Quicksilver continues to mature and evolve, the challenges grow increasingly complex,” Dr. Shade said. “Linda’s extensive experience managing growth and people, and redirecting businesses toward fruitful markets and opportunities, makes her the perfect person for this important role.
In Parrish’s new role as Head of People and Culture, she will spearhead Quicksilver’s strategic focus on further developing an inclusive, meaningful and creative environment that attracts, develops and engages employees – meeting new workforce expectations that will allow Quicksilver to continue its successful growth trajectory. Her work will encompass implementing strategies that build upon the company’s high-performance culture and further employees’ professional development.
“Ever since Melanie joined Quicksilver Scientific to build out our Human Resources function in 2017, she has been instrumental in helping shape our workplace environment,” Dr. Shade said. “With over 15 years of experience partnering with executive-level leadership and expertise in organizational culture change, she has the knowledge and skills needed to help us to continue to evolve our culture and create an employee
experience that reflects the best of Quicksilver.”
“Together, these two synergistic roles, taken on by accomplished leaders, will drive Quicksilver’s pursuit of excellence, innovation and a flourishing workplace culture,” Dr. Shade added.
