AMERICAN SYSTEMS Vice President of Human Resources Chris Braccio has been appointed to the company’s board of directors.
Braccio will take Joe Kopfman’s former seat, as he recently retired after 43 years with AMERICAN SYSTEMS as executive vice president of contracts and administration.

Braccio joined AMERICAN SYSTEMS in 2007 and is responsible for the strategic alignment of human talent to achieve the corporate mission. She oversees the company’s entire human capital function, including talent management, compensation, benefits, community affairs and charitable programs.
Braccio has over 25 years of HR experience and has held senior human resource leadership roles at World Kitchen, StarBand Communications and Sunrise Assisted Living, as well as at Fortune 500 companies such as GTE (now Verizon), Contel, Eaton Corp. and National Semiconductor.
