Eagle County, CO Colorado
EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – Lisa Ponder will take over as the county’s human resources director on June 22.
Ponder worked as the human resources director at the Wolcott-based Gallegos Corporation for the last four years and prior to that had a job as the director of human resources functions at HR Department, LLC – a company that provides human resources services to its clients.
“We’re very excited to have a person of Lisa’s caliber join our organization,” said County Manger Keith Montag. “The experience and background she brings, as well as her knowledge of our community, will be a terrific complement to our management team.”
Ponder has a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a law degree from Brigham Young University in Utah. Ponder will be responsible for things like employee recruitment and retention.
More than 170 people applied for the position, which has been vacant since December 2008.
