Alison Nasisi

Chief People Officer

"I see the purpose of Human Resources as fostering an environment that allows employees to thrive both professionally and personally. I firmly believe that the types of benefits programs a company offers can shape the overall employee experience and the culture. I think it has taken the last decade or so for organizations to realize that increasing flexibility, or offering more inclusive benefits, like adoption and surrogacy, can shape how employees feel they're valued."

In October 2021, Alison Nasisi was named vice president, chief people officer and appointed as a member of Sarepta’s executive committee. She joined Sarepta in September 2019, as senior director, global total rewards focused on compensation and building out Sarepta’s benefits offerings, employee recognition and work-life resources, advancing to executive director, global total rewards.

Alison believes in digging into the needs of an employee community and has dedicated her career to supporting people in doing their best work by providing programing and initiatives that support the whole person and overall wellbeing.  She believes that flexibility is a competitive advantage based on first-hand experience as a new mother. When Alison’s children were young, her then employer’s flexibility allowed her to work part-time. When her children were older, she was able to transition back to full-time work, continuing to advance her career with enhanced perspective on the impact of work-life benefits and flexibility. 

Alison’s deep knowledge and expertise in people and culture comes from over 20 years dedicated to serving employees in various compensation and benefits roles of increasing responsibility. Before joining Sarepta, she was director of compensation and work-life at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Prior to the Broad Institute she honed her compensation and benefits skills at Forrester Research, Giga Information Group, Inc., Sappi and Children’s Hospital Boston. 

Alison received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Industrial Relations from McGill University and an MBA in Human Resources from the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University.
