Halifax County announced that Senior Human Resources Analyst Kristin Shotwell has been selected as the new human resources management director.
She began her new job Thursday.
With former director Renee Perry’s selection as deputy county manager in June, a recruitment and interview process was conducted to find her replacement.
Shotwell began her employment with Halifax County in August 2020 as a senior human resources analyst.
She has more than 18 years of experience in benefit administration and human resources and nine years of experience in local government, including previous employment with Northampton County and the city of Hampton, Virginia.
“Mrs. Shotwell has experience as a human resources director in another North Carolina county, so she is well prepared to step into this new role,” said County Manager Dia Denton. “This promotion should allow for a smooth transition for the department, and I also look forward to her joining my management team.”
A native of Yorktown, Virginia, Shotwell received her bachelor’s in business administration with a concentration in marketing from Christopher Newport University.
She currently resides in Roanoke Rapids with husband Jamie and two children, her daughter Kylie, 18, and her son Peyton, 15.
