Rod Lacey is a Professional in Residence for the Woodbury School of Business at Utah Valley University. 

Rod has 25 years of prior, progressive, corporate human resource leadership experience and his companies have won multiple awards for employee programs and culture. He left the 'corporate scene' in 2017 to launched two companies, one of which is Sunstone HR Consulting. Rod's clients for Sunstone HR are primarily local, but he has spent considerable time in other states building 'the people side of businesses.'

One of Sunstone HR's primary services is Human Resource Certification Preparation courses, which will be incorporated into the curriculum at UVU beginning in 2019. 

Why HR? Rod often quotes Run DMC when asked this question: "When I wake-up people take up mostly all of my time." Rod has spent his entire career focused on getting the most out of the people within the organization, and he brings this passion and expertise into the classroom. 

Rod has a BS in Management (Human Resource and Industrial Relations emphasis) and an MBA (Marketing Communications emphasis), both from Idaho State University. Rod also received an Advanced Human Resource Executive Certificate from the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business.

Rod is current with a SPHR Certification (Senior Professional of Human Resources) and a SHRM-SCP Certification (Society of Human Resource Management Senior Certified Professional).
