The Franklin County Commissioners announced this morning that Laura Repasky would be starting April 18th
as Human Resources Director for the board. Though new to the position, Repasky is not new to the commissioners’ office, having worked there for 11 years and serving since 2018 as the Chief Operating Officer of the commissioners’ largest agency, Job and Family Services. In the new role, Repasky will be taking over responsibility for employment services, training, and comprehensive human resources for the board’s 14 county agencies and more than 1,400 employees.
“Quality human resources is essential for a team as large and complicated as ours,” said County Administrator Kenneth N. Wilson. “Our employees are our greatest resource, and we work hard to recruit and retain the best possible staff that we can in order to provide the best possible service for our residents. Laura is a talented administrator with a proven track record, and we’re excited for her to be starting in this role.”
The Board of Commissioners serves as the administrative head of county government, setting strategic direction and fiscal priorities for the nation’s 30th
largest county, including overseeing a nearly $2 billion annual budget. Repasky is taking over for long-time Human Resources director, Rob Young, who retired last month. She will oversee a team of 30 employees which manages recruitment, bargaining unit negotiations, and benefits for the commissioners’ team. She is 41 years old and will be paid $137,000 annually.
“I’m thrilled to able to move into this role and to support the great team that we have working on behalf of our residents,” said Repasky. “The Board of Commissioners is a fantastic place to work and has always done an excellent job of taking care of its employees, so I’m really excited to be a bigger part of that going forward.”
