Montgomery County Mayor Appoints New HR Director

Alyssa Pierce was appointed by Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett as the new Director of Human Resources, effective Dec. 7.

Prior to working for the County, Pierce most recently led as Hand Family Companies Corporate Human Resources Manager. The position included HR leadership responsibilities for more than 1,100 employees across 10 worksites in three states. She had 10 years of experience working for Hand Family Companies.

A Clarksville native, and graduate of Austin Peay State University, Pierce also has a background in insurance and benefits with State Farm Insurance, as well as in the education sector as both a high school science teacher and technical college admissions advisor.

“I am honored to serve as the human resources director for Montgomery County Government. I’ve had the opportunity to meet leadership and employees in many departments in the short time that I’ve been here and grow more impressed each day with the dedication and professionalism of the County team. I am eager to serve the employees and the community in this position,” stated Pierce.

“We are very excited to move forward with Alyssa at the helm of our HR department,” said Mayor Durrett. “She brings a wealth of knowledge from the business sector and has excellent credentials in the HR field. I’d also like to thank Michelle Lowe, our diversity and training officer, for the great job she did serving as our interim HR director since mid-August.”
