Andrea Piccarelli Joins BHI Energy as Vice President of Human Resources

BHI Energy (BHI) announced today that Andrea Piccarelli has joined the organization effective April 1, as Vice President of Human Resources.  She will be responsible for providing strategy, leadership and direction for all the employee-related functions of the organization, including leadership development, performance management, retention, and diversity.

With Andrea’s arrival, Frank Coen will be transitioning towards retirement following his 15-year career leading the HR function here at BHI.  Frank has been an integral part of BHI’s business; and will be working closely with Andrea to transition responsibilities over to her.  While Frank will be retiring in the near future, we are excited that he will continue to remain a valued resource to the team on an as needed basis given his extensive depth and breadth of knowledge of HR and BHI.

Andrea brings to BHI more than nineteen years of Human Resources management and administration experience, with a focus on managing the overall Human Resources functions.  She spent the last six years at Covanta, a large global corporation that provides a variety of waste management and incineration services, as their Director of Human Resources leading 14 of their sites and 1000+ union and non-union employees. Prior to that, she was a Human Resources Manager with The Smithers Group for 7 years, responsible for all functions of HR for a contract research organization in the biotech and packaging testing industries.  She also worked for six years with Tyco Engineered Products & Services (now Johnson Controls Intl), in a variety of roles of increasing responsibility culminating in Human Resources Manager.

Andrea holds an MBA from Norwich University, a BS in Business Administration and a BA in Communications from Bryant University.  She holds her Global Professional in Human Resources certification (GPHR) and her Senior Professional in Human Resources certification from SHRM.  Andrea will report to Juanita Biasini, BHI Energy’s Chief Administrative Officer.  She will be located in the Weymouth office, and can be reached at email at andrea.piccarelli at
