City of Greeley officials welcome an experienced and strategic-minded leader to an executive role as the city’s human resources director.
City Manager Raymond Lee announced the hiring of Noël Mink after an extensive search that drew 44 applicants.
“We sought a skilled, passionate and engaged HR leader who could help lead us through transformational change in fostering a high-performing organization that serves and supports our growing population,” Lee said. “Noël brings the knowledge, skills, abilities and experience we were looking for in the position.”
Mink’s municipal government career started in 2006 as a training supervisor for the City of Aurora’s 911 Dispatch Center. After moving into a management role as the city’s HR employment and compensation administrator, she served as the HR interim director and manager of operations for the department of 28 staff members. She is currently the City of Littleton’s HR director, a position she’s held since 2018.
As a member of the City of Greeley’s executive team, Mink will lead the HR department in pursuit of the city’s vision of achieving community excellence and supporting the organization in becoming one of high performance. Under her leadership, the department supports 13 departments in maximizing mission-critical focuses such as recruitment, retention, performance management, innovative solutions, total compensation, and training and development.
“I am thrilled to be part of the Greeley team,” Mink said. “Throughout my interview process, I have been incredibly impressed with the leadership and the employees. The desire to serve the community came through in every interaction and that resonated deeply with me. Greeley is a unique and wonderful community, and I am proud to be part of it.”
Mink earned a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management from Colorado Christian University (CCU) and a master’s degree from CCU.
She will start with the city on May 18 and develop a transition plan with interim HR director Kathleen Hix, whom Lee thanked for serving in the role during the search for a permanent director.
