Highlights

Hutto’s previous human resources director was fired.

The city of Hutto has hired a new director of human resources.

Shawna Willis is the former director of Human Resources and Organizational Development for Golfsmith International, according to a city news release. Willis overhauled Golfsmith’s performance review process and increased internal promotion rates by 15 percent, the release said. Goldsmith is a private corporation that operates retail stores specializing in golf equipment.

Willis’ previous jobs also include creating a human resource department for Ohio Christian University, according to the release.

Hutto City Manager Odis Jones said in the news release that Willis “brings over a decade of experience and has a proven track record.”

The previous human resources director for the city of Hutto, Amy McGlothlin, was recently fired. Jones said at a news conference last week that he fired her, plus an assistant city manager and a senior planner, because they didn’t have the skills for their jobs.

McGlothlin’s attorney, Millicent Lundburg, said after the news conference last week that McGlothlin and the assistant city manager were fired in retaliation for reporting a discrimination and harassment charge against Jones to the Hutto mayor.
