Little Rock, AR (February 25, 2021)— ZIPS Car Wash (www.zipscarwash.com) announced today that Michele Gloor has joined the ZIPS team as Vice President of Human Resources. As ZIPS continues to expand and now operates 202 locations, the need for a strong training and recruitment infrastructure has become a top priority.
Gloor has an extensive background in talent management and human resources, having most recently served as an HR advisor to several private equity backed portfolio companies. Previously, she worked for a number of marquee brands such as Best Buy, Zales, IBM (Kenexa) and Brinker International.
“My career began at Blockbuster Video at 17 years old thinking it was just a job, but in turn, it started my career, and I want potential employees for ZIPS to feel they can truly start a career when they join our team,” said Gloor. “I steadily worked my way through the ranks from Customer Service to corporate support and I ended up spending 13 years with Blockbuster and still think of it as one of my most favorite places to work,” she added.
In recent years, recruiting, talent acquisition and training has shaped Gloor’s portfolio, giving her the skills needed for the task at hand. In 2018, Gloor was recruited to Lori’s Gifts, to start a recruiting department and was quickly promoted into the Director of Talent for Atlantic Street Capital Advisors, LLC.
“I have a passion for people, for learning their stories and helping them solve issues and relieve anxieties,” Gloor said. “My goal for recruiting and retaining employees at ZIPS will be to offer them an exceptional experience and a place they love to work,” she added.
