Cassie NicolaiVice President of Human Resources and Safety
Starting with Gage Brothers in 2010, Cassie Nicolai has helped lead our team through growth and changes, including our move to a new facility in 2018. In her role as Vice President of Human Resources and Safety, she is responsible for our team members’ experience from hire to retire, which includes onboarding, training, safety, compensation, culture, recognition, and leadership development.
Cassie is passionate about creating a workplace where people can come as they are, to be heard, to be creative, and to be recognized for their unique skills and strengths. One of the achievements she’s most proud of is Gage’s transformation into a fully bilingual English/Spanish organization. All team member communications are done in both languages, and we have bilingual team members across all departments and levels.
Cassie holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from University of South Dakota. She is a Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) with the Society for Human Resource Management and has Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification from HRCI.
Outside of work, she enjoys camping with her husband and dogs, practicing her Spanish skills, traveling, cooking, and fostering dogs for Almost Home Canine Rescue.
