Lexicon, a legal technology and services provider, has named Ken Fleischmann as its new Chief People Experience Officer. Mr. Fleischmann will oversee the people experience team and drive the workplace culture to continue to grow the strong company values that guide Lexicon’s team.
In addition to guiding the company’s internal people experience initiatives, Mr. Fleischmann will also have leadership accountability for the Lexicon HR services packages available to its law firm customers, including payroll and benefits management, leadership training, employee development; performance management; CLE administration; consulting; and more.
Mr. Fleischmann joins the executive team with more than 30 years of experience, including private law practice as a labor and employment law attorney and executive leadership positions as a general counsel and chief human resources officer for higher education institutions.

He was responsible for managing human resources, legal, compliance, and risk management services. Mr. Fleischmann also led the establishment of a comprehensive enterprise risk management and compliance program, ethics training, the development of unit staffing models, and human capital metrics reports.
As Vice President of Human Resources at Saint Louis University in Missouri (1989-2013), Mr. Fleischmann directed strategic initiatives resulting in decreased turnover, increased employee engagement and satisfaction, improved recruitment, performance evaluation processes, training, and a multi-million dollar overhaul of compensation and benefits programs.
Mr. Fleischmann received his Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Political Science from the University of Akron and his Juris Doctor from Ohio Northern University.
He is a member of the Pujols Family Foundation Advisory Board and provides pro bono legal services to the organization. This national not-for-profit agency seeks to serve impoverished communities in the Dominican Republic.
