At NWN Carousel, a long-on-the-move executive plans to stay put
Andrea Morrison has moved 19 times in her career, first with the Army and then with various corporate relocations at United Technologies Corp., now known as Raytheon. (Her most recent previous employer was UTC spinoff Carrier.) But she doesn’t expect a 20th move anytime soon, now that she’s the chief people officer at cloud communications provider NWN Carousel. Morrison relocated from Florida to New Hampshire last year, and she recently got promoted to her current role. While NWN’s corporate headquarters is in Exeter, R.I., Morrison is based out ofa newly opened NWN office on the seventh floor of the 111 Huntington Ave. tower.
NWN had closed its Waltham office early in the pandemic. This represents a rebirth of that office, but in a more high-profile location. It will serve as a collaboration center for NWN’s 500-plus employees in the region, and a customer experience center where NWN can showcase services it offers to help employers with hybrid and remote work.
Even though NWN has a physical office again in Greater Boston, Morrison said the company has no plans to mandate that people be there on certain days of the week.
“We are ‘the hybrid work company,’” Morrison said. “It’s important that we’re living that as a culture.”
