Suzanne Lane Bandanza

Human Resources Manager
Education: Skidmore College
Read More
Suzanne has learned the company from the ground up since she joined Kerivan-Lane in1986. As the current director of HR, she credits her success to having been involved in every aspect of the business throughout the years.  Suzanne is especially grateful to have worked alongside her father and mentor, John R. Lane, and learned all business-related skills under his leadership. She considers that time she spent at Kerivan-Lane with her father a true privilege.

Suzanne and her husband, James, raised their daughter, Lane Marie, in Needham and currently reside in Boston. She thinks that what she took on in commuting time has been more than offset by the opportunity for change and the new adventures that city life offers!

Suzanne’s priorities outside of work have always revolved around building relationships within the community, both while representing Kerivan-Lane, herself, and her family. She has enjoyed taking part in organizations and supporting work that make an impact such as Dream Big!, MGH Cancer Center, Community Servings, Crossroads School, House of Possibilities, JDRF, and many more.

Suzanne appreciates working alongside her brother, Christopher Lane, and being part of the Kerivan-Lane community. She believes the core values at Kerivan-Lane attract an impressive team of employees and loyal customers. These core values have resulted in a growing company that she is excited to be a part of each day.
