Perry replaces Cheryl Warren, who departed Halifax County in 2017.
Perry was selected from a qualified pool of applicants and emerged as the top candidate after a rigorous interview and selection process.
Perry has spent the last eight years with Guilford County government serving in a variety of human resources capacities, but most recently as a human resources senior analyst.
Prior to her employment with Guilford County, Perry worked for the city of Greensboro as a human resources processing and records coordinator.
Perry obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Human Resources from UNC-Greensboro and a Master’s Degree in Human Resources from Capella University.
Halifax County Manager Tony Brown, expressed his satisfaction with the selection of Perry. “I am looking forward to establishing a positive working relationship with Mrs. Perry and look forward to her joining our Halifax County team. Her extensive background in county government and specifically human resources makes her a great fit for the county’s needs.”
Her first day with Halifax County is October 1.
Perry has plans to relocate to Halifax County in the near future, but has roots in Nash County where much of her family still resides.
