Fran Cleffi, Vice President of Human Resources, has been a proud member of Team Suburban Propane for 28 years. Fran started her career with Suburban Propane as a temporary employee in the Human Resources department after she graduated college. Over the years she has been fortunate to have the opportunity to serve in various roles within the Human Resources department including Compensation, Talent Management, HR Information Systems and Benefits and recently, Managing Director.
According to Fran, she’s stayed with Suburban Propane for 28 years because, “I work with an awesome team of talented people who all share the same goal.
