Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson has hired Tyler Andrews as the human resources director for the Municipality of Anchorage. The previous HR director, Niki Tshibaka resigned in February, citing an “increasingly toxic, hostile, and demoralizing work environment.”
Andrews has over 27 years of human resources, labor relations, management, safety, and communications experience in the private and public sector working for Chugach Electric Association, Alaska Communications Services, City of Ketchikan, and the State of Alaska.
“Tyler’s range of experience in labor relations, human resources, customer service, communications, and safety show his ability to lead the Municipality’s Human Resources Department,” Bronson said. “I look forward to working with him and our great staff in Human Resources to help every current and new employee be successful city wide.”
Andrews has a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and has served as a management member of the Alaska Labor Relations Agency since 2008. His start date will be May 8, and he must be confirmed by the Anchorage Assembly to become permanent.
