Boston, MA — Beacon Communities, an industry leader in affordable, market and mixed income property development, announced it has hired two new members for their Human Resources team: Fritz Cope as Director, Total Rewards and Shaun McPartland as Director, Talent Acquisition.

Prior to joining the Beacon team, Mr. Cope was Senior Manager, Rewards & Technology at Wheelabrator Technologies for over four years.

Mr. McPartland comes to Beacon most recently from the Pyramid Hotel Group, where he served as Corporate Director of Talent Acquisition for nearly seventeen years. In his new role as Director, Talent Acquisition, Mr. McPartland will be a human resources leader and subject matter expert, building strong relationships with hiring managers and establishing the use of best practices to ensure Beacon identifies and hires the best talent available.
