Sirius XM Holdings Inc., the leading audio entertainment company in North America, announced that Faye Tylee is joining the company as Chief Human Resources Officer, effective March 1, 2022. Tylee succeeds Dara Altman, SiriusXM’s Chief Administrative Officer, who will be retiring after serving in senior management positions with the company since 2006. Altman will work with Tylee until the end of May 2022 to ensure a seamless transition.
Tylee will report directly to SiriusXM CEO Jennifer Witz, and will lead the teams that support SiriusXM’s Human Resources, including Talent Acquisition, Culture and Employee Experience, Total Rewards, HR Business Partners and Employee Relations, Learning and Development, HR People Services and Analytics, as well as the company’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts, and social impact programs.
Tylee brings more than 25 years of experience as a global human resources leader. She comes to SiriusXM from Avaya Holdings Corp., where she was Chief Human Resources Officer for a global leader in digital communications software, services and devices. Prior to Avaya, she was the Executive Vice President, Human Resources for Wyndham Worldwide, one of the world’s largest hospitality companies, for more than a decade. Tylee studied Human Resources at The University of Northampton, U.K.
“We are thrilled to welcome Faye to SiriusXM to lead our outstanding human resources team and to help establish SiriusXM’s next generation of leaders,” said Witz. “Faye will be instrumental in continuing our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, drawing the best talent to SiriusXM, and helping to develop our employees both professionally and personally. Her background leading human resources teams at companies focused on technology and consumer experience makes her a great asset for our leadership during this dynamic time of growth and innovation for SiriusXM.”
Tylee said, “SiriusXM has a history of pushing boundaries, and is a respected leader in audio entertainment that has established a culture that puts people first. I could not be more excited to join the team and bring new ideas to the table, expand our diversity and inclusion efforts, and build even further on the company’s results-oriented culture of collaboration, teamwork, and trust.”
“As we welcome Faye, I also want to acknowledge our deep thanks to Dara for her years of dedication, service and friendship, and we congratulate her on her retirement,” Witz added. “She has made the culture of SiriusXM better, led progressive change, and is a leader who we truly admire. Dara has made it possible for the Company and our people to thrive, and we’re proud to bring the programs and efforts she championed at SiriusXM into the future.”
Said Altman, “A company’s employees are its greatest asset and I am truly thankful to have had the special opportunity to help lead SiriusXM’s people. I am so proud of the growth of our company, as well as the social impact we’ve endeavored to have with our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, the establishment of SXM Cares, our charitable effort, and particularly, guiding and directing our efforts to keep employees safe during the COVID pandemic. I am pleased to know that Faye will continue to drive our culture forward and do great work on behalf of all SiriusXM employees.”
