Traci Knoblauch Nordberg, currently Director of Human Resources for Massachusetts General Hospital/Partners Healthcare System, Inc.

Nordberg will oversee the Dartmouth Human Resources Office, which provides services in the areas of benefits, compensation, employee relations, recruitment and training and career development for the College's more than 4,200 employees.

Keller said, "Traci Nordberg brings to Dartmouth a contemporary, action-oriented vision of HR services and a wealth of hands-on experience in creating and implementing programs to recruit, train, motivate and retain excellent employees. I am delighted to welcome her to Dartmouth and look forward to working with her in support of the entire College community."

Nordberg's appointment follows a nationwide search. She succeeds Acting Associate Vice President for Human Resources Barbara Johnson, who served as Interim Head of Human Resources following the death of Associate Vice President for Human Resources Christine Chevalier in July 2004.

Nordberg said she looks forward to starting her new position, and added, "It's an honor for me to join the Dartmouth community. I look forward to meeting employees, managers and faculty to learn about their needs and to leading the Human Resources team to provide innovative solutions to attract, retain, manage and develop employees. My approach is to be visible with an eye on efficiency, provide access to information and offer strong consulting services."

Nordberg is a graduate of Suffolk University School of Law in Boston and received a bachelor's degree from Ball State University in Indiana.

She has worked at MGH for the last nine years where she oversaw services to 18,000 employees and managed a team of over 40 HR professionals at the $1-billion academic medical center. Partners Healthcare honored Nordberg with its Partners in Excellence Award four times. She previously worked in human resources at Vencor (formerly Hillhaven Corporation) in Lowell, Mass.; Beverly Health and Rehabilitation in Carmel, Ind.; and Methodist Hospital of Indiana, Inc./Practice Management, Inc. in Indianapolis.

Nordberg brings her husband Peter and their two daughters with her to Hanover.
