Emily Hamman, deputy chief human resources officer, has been appointed associate vice president and chief human resources officer of Wright State University, effective Jan. 24.
She will replace Shari Mickey-Boggs, who, after eight years of service with the university, is leaving Wright State for another opportunity at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
“Ms. Hamman’s appointment is a great example of business units developing strong succession planning for potential leadership positions at the university,” said President Sue Edwards, Ph.D.
Hamman has spent more than two decades of her professional career at Wright State and joined Human Resources in 2000.
During this time, Hamman has undertaken various roles in Human Resources, functioning as an HR business partner to many university colleges and administrative units; served as the university liaison to the faculty and staff bargaining units; and has overseen the negotiation, administration and interpretation of several collective bargaining agreements. She has also been responsible for the university’s talent management function, including performance management systems, employee training and leadership development programming.
She has held many positions in Human Resources, including director of talent management and staff labor relations, human resources business partner and staff labor relations director, employee and labor relations manager, and most recently, as deputy chief human resources officer and labor relations manager.
As associate vice president and chief human resources officer, Hamman will oversee the operations of Human Resources as well as maintain her role managing university labor relations. She will report to Edwards and will serve on the President’s Cabinet and President’s Council.
Hamman earned an MBA from Wright State and a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of South Florida.
