Dawson County Manager David Headley announced March 22 that the county had named Lisa Green as its next human resources director.
“I enthusiastically welcome Lisa to our team.” Headley said. “We look forward to Lisa’s course of action in moving Dawson County forward.”
Headley said that Green was chosen from a number of extremely qualified candidates and was selected due to her proven track record of success and her extensive human resources education and experience.
Green will begin her official duties April 8.
“I am truly humbled and honored to hold such a prestigious position,” Green said. “I am excited to be part of Dawson County government and help lead our county forward in success.”
According to a press release from Dawson County Public Relations Specialist Laura Fulcher, Green is a certified professional manager and has her Master of Business Administration, a bachelor’s degree in management/finance and three associate degrees in human resource management, instructor of technology and military science and criminal justice.
She is a retired Senior Master Sergeant from the United States Air Force with 22 years of security, human resources, training and work force development.
During her tenure with the Air Force, Green was a trusted advisor to senior leadership regarding training requirements, staff performance and long-term strategic planning.
Green served as the senior manager of human resources for three years while stationed in Warner Robins where she served as a key advisor to senior leadership of seven organizations with 2,500 staff personnel. She was the primary contact for personnel matters, providing advice regarding morale, discipline, mentoring, recognition and evaluation reports.
In addition, she served as HR Council treasurer, Alcohol Incident Working Group chair and Military Personnel Relief vice president.
As senior manager of human resources, Green maintained an annual budget and served as top senior leadership by preparing 150 administrative actions and nearly two dozen military discharges. She was an all-around mentor in which she chaired award and promotion ceremonies, briefed payroll system operations, enforced rules and regulations as well as provided health, morale and welfare support to personnel and family.
Green will be filling the position that was held by Danielle Yarbrough, a 20-year county employee that was fired Feb. 8 after it became known she had received confidential information from a commissioner via email.
