HR is excited to announce a few enhancements and promotions to achieve their goal of providing exceptional service to their customers—Copart employees.

Meet Copart’s HR personnel and learn more about their role!

Promotions and Enhancements:

Michael has been promoted from Recruiter to Manager of Talent Acquisition.  Mike has been with Copart for just over three years.   Now, moving towards our goal of branding Copart as a career destination, Mike will be responsible for overseeing the department and attracting and hiring top tier talent for Copart.

 

A little bit about Mike: He has lived in the United States for 20 years after having moved from the U.K.  He considers himself a “naturalized Texan” and spends his free time chasing after twin 6-year-old boys.  Before deciding that Recruiting was “his thing” he was an amateur boxer with more than 200 fights under his belt. Mike also claims that Arnold Schwarzenegger once lifted him up with one hand.

Kallie SirlesKallie

Kallie has recently been given the new role of HR Generalist.  She has been with Copart for just over two years and previously served as our HR Coordinator.  Now, Kallie will focus on projects and implementations, support of ReplaceMyCar as they grow and also continue to manage the processes that keep the HR Department humming on a daily basis.

 

A little bit about Kallie: She runs for fun and completed two half marathons last year.  She is a native Texan who is married to her college sweetheart. They have a little girl, Harper who is 3 and are expecting a little boy later this year.

Christina has been with Copart for more than four years and made the move from California to Dallas when the HQ office relocated.  She has functioned as our guru of all things Worker’s Comp, Unemployment, Leave of Absence administration and pre-employment requirements.  Now, she will maintain some of her old responsibilities while adding in other functional areas of Human Resources.

A little bit about Christina: She’s a new mom to Dominick and is currently finishing up her bachelor’s degree in Human Resources. Christina will be the first one in her family to graduate college since her grandparent’s in the 60s. Christina supports the Yankees and is an avid UFC and horror movie fan.

A little bit about Kelsey: She was recently a finalist when trying out for Wheel of Fortune, she played collegiate water polo and is a master baker who has quickly become a fan favorite at Corporate for the sweet treats she brings in.
