Dennis Purcell

Chief Human Resources Officer

Dennis Purcell

Dennis came to Skidmore in 2012 as the company’s first Human Resources professional, also working with our other companies, Essex Food Ingredients and Processor’s Choice on their HR needs.

He acts as an employee advocate and counselor in our employee-oriented, high-performance culture. Previously, he spent over two decades at a commercial printing firm where he was also that company’s first HR person.

Dennis holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics and Psychology from Williams College, as well as an MBA from Xavier University.

In his spare time, he enjoys road and mountain biking, hiking, and chasing (but never catching) his rescue greyhound. He is married with four children.
