Dave Wagner’s HR team is finding the right people to power II-VI’s rapid expansion in diverse markets
Dave Wagner developed his interest in human resources while still in college. Rather than concentrate on accounting, marketing, or operations, he studied human resources management. “I tended to be more interested in how people impacted the business,” he says. Wagner is now vice president, human resources at II-VI, Incorporated, a public company with more than $1 billion in revenue.
