OTTAWA, Jan. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) has appointed Thomas Lokar as Chief Human Resources Officer. With more than 18 years of technology sector experience, Lokar brings deep expertise in organization effectiveness, talent management, and employee development at a series of fortune 500 companies.

"Mitel is focused on growing our business - globally, organically and through aggressive M&A - and having world-class human resource management is critical for us to be able to identify, attract, retain, reward and develop our global employee base," said Richard McBee, Chief Executive Officer of Mitel. "Tom Lokar's extensive industry experience background will play a strategic role in helping Mitel drive growth."

Lokar joins Mitel from HP, where he served as Vice President of Human Resources for Enterprise Services, Global Outsourcing and Application Services. Prior to that, Tom spent six years at AOL as Senior Vice President of HR Products, Platforms and Technology Development, before leaving to become president and co-founder of an online career management and talent management start-up. While there he developed a series of assessment tools and feedback protocols designed to help those seeking employment better define their career plan and to assist recruiters in finding candidates that best match job qualifications. Early in his career Tom worked at Bristol Myers Squibb in leadership development and prior to that he spent 7 years in management consulting.

"Mitel's aggressive approach to achieving profitable growth creates a dynamic and exciting business environment for employees and for the organization globally," said Mr. Lokar. "The company has an impressive track-record of driving innovation that drives growth, and I'm looking forward to helping further harness and unleash the ingenuity of employees as we move towards the company's next chapter."

Tom holds a PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Kansas State University. He earned his B.A. from the University of Detroit.
