March 15, 2011—Donna J. Hampton has been named the new Human Resources Division leader. She replaces Ben Glover, who will be leaving the Laboratory to pursue other interests.
Hampton comes to LANL with more than 20 years of Human Resource management experience including corporate-level oversight of HR programs at sites managed and operated by B&W Technical Services for the Department of Energy. She has performed as the vice president of Human Resources at Y-12 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and most recently, as the Human Resources Division Manager at the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas.
Hampton has been successful in implementing policies and practices to improve productivity and reduce overhead costs at these facilities, and her experience interacting with NNSA and DOE provide her with a unique combination of skills that will be of great benefit to the Laboratory.
"Donna is highly qualified to lead Human Resources at LANL," said Mark Barth, associate director for business services. "Her extensive experience with NNSA makes her particularly valuable. We are fortunate that she is joining our team."
Hampton has a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and two master’s degrees—an MS in Industrial Relations from the University of New Haven in Connecticut and an MA in Applied Behavioral Science from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington.
She assumes her new position March 28.
