Metals processing and recycling technology company Nth Cycle, Boston, has announced the hiring of Sakina E.G. Evans as its first vice president of people. The company says Evans will be focused on talent recruitment and the development of high-performing teams while integrating diversity and equity programs companywide.
“A business can only go so far without exceptional leadership, a purpose-driven mission and a great team that cares about each other and the world,” Evans says. “Nth Cycle has it all and that’s why I’m here. I’m honored to join a company that’s leading the energy transition and is committed to using its breakthrough innovations to build a clean and sustainable future.”
Evans has over 25 years of experience in human resources operations and talent management. She is the founder and CEO of EvansOne, a Boston-based executive consulting firm focused on helping technology companies recruit talent, build high-performing teams and integrate common sense programs across their organization. Nth Cycle says her methods have been modeled and tested throughout her career, including her work as vice president of people at Bose Corp., where she was responsible for 9,000 employees and seven divisions serving 27 multinational markets.
Prior to Bose, Evans held positions at startups and nonprofits, including Idiom Technologies and Partners Healthcare. She is a certified executive coach and holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Toronto. She is a member of the board of directors at Cardinal Cushing Centers Inc. and a member of the advisory board for the Women’s Foundation of Boston.
“Sakina brings critical experience supporting startups and large corporations alike, as well as serving on the boards of a variety of well-established organizations,” Nth Cycle CEO Megan O’Connor says. “Her experience in building high-performing teams while ensuring a more just and equal workplace will be invaluable to Nth Cycle as we continue to scale our electro-extraction technology to enable a low cost and low emissions opportunity for domestic mining and recycling.”
