Goodyear names new HR director


GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Oct. 10, 2011) The city of Goodyear has named Wynette L. Reed as the new director of human resources. She will officially join Goodyear on Oct. 31. Reed was hired from a field of more than 100 applicants and six finalists. A national search for the successful candidate was led by The Mercer Group, Inc. after former Human Resources Director Kay Wilkinson retired earlier this year.

Reed has more than 25 years of experience, and has been Human Resources Director for the City of Peoria, Ariz. since 2008. Reed was Human Resources Director for Larimer County, Fort Collins, Colo. from 2004 to 2008, Assistant Human Resources director for the City of Fort Collins, Colo. from 2001 to 2004, and from 1993 to 2001 served as Senior Human Resources Specialist for the City of Loveland, Colo.

City Manager John Fischbach and Reed worked together in Fort Collins from 2001 to 2004, and Reed says she is looking forward to working with him again. "Goodyear is a very progressive, growing city and affords me the opportunity to bring my 25 years of skills and experience to a new community," Reed said. "It's also a wonderful opportunity to work with an individual that I've worked with before in Colorado, Mr. John Fischbach."

Reed is pursuing her Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership and has earned her Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science, both from Colorado State University. Reed's professional affiliations include the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), and World at Work International Public Management Association (IPMA-HR) certified professional.  She created Peoria University, a succession-planning and retention initiative for aspiring supervisors and other emerging leaders which has been accepted by Arizona State University as meeting the prerequisites for its Certified Public Management Program.
