Oasis Group hires new chief people officer

Information management organisation Oasis Group has recruited Sarah Vidgen to join the group as chief people officer.

As chief people officer, Vidgen will be responsible for the HR functions of the group, applying a people-first strategy to attract, develop and retain top talent.

With more than 20 years of experience in human resources from across diverse industries including public sector, construction, logistics and information management, she most recently served as senior director of global HR service delivery and operations for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region at Iron Mountain.

Vidgen said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Oasis on its growth journey, alongside Eddie Aston and the rest of the leadership team. I’m particularly excited to have the opportunity to build an amazing global community that shares one set of values and culture, while understanding the need for regional identities.”

Eddie Aston, chief executive officer of Oasis Group, added: “Sarah’s appointment is an important step for Oasis, as we enter a new phase of growth. Our people are the foundation of our business, it is vital that every team member feels that Oasis is a place where they can grow. We have a unique opportunity to reimagine how we support our team and Sarah will play an important role in this.”
