BOISE, Idaho — POWER Engineers, Inc., has named former Simplot human resources director Kayce McEwan as its new Chief Human Resources Officer.

“We had an amazing list of candidates, both internal and external,” said POWER Chief Strategy Officer Randy Grass. “In the end, Kayce’s results-driven leadership on a global scale, including her focus on long-term planning and building high-performing teams, made her the best fit for the role.”

Kayce McEwan is named Chief Human Resources Officer at Power Engineers.

McEwan most recently served as the Head of Human Resources for the J.R. Simplot Company’s Global Food Group business unit, a 5,500-person group with offices across nine countries. McEwan served for 28 years at Simplot leading key human resources initiatives such as talent acquisition, leadership development, labor relations, business partnering, and international mergers and acquisitions.

“I am truly excited to be joining such an incredible company, and to meet the rest of the team that clearly is the heartbeat that fuels their success,” McEwan said. “The passion was evident in each and every conversation that I’ve had, so I consider myself extremely fortunate to be joining them on this journey!”
