Amy Wilson Guerreri Appointed County Personnel Commissioner

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Amy Wilson Guerreri has been appointed Tompkins County Commissioner of Personnel following a national search.  The Legislature confirmed County Administrator Joe Mareane’s appointment of Ms. Guererri by unanimous vote (Legislators Nate Shinagawa and Peter Stein were excused.)  The appointment is for an initial six-year term, as is required under provisions of New York State Civil Service Law.  She succeeds Deborah Prato, who accepted a position with the New Jersey Transit Authority.

The new Commissioner has served as Personnel Director for Yates County since 2012, and for eight years before that served as talent acquisition recruiter for the 9,000-person Rochester General Health System, while also fulfilling a number of other human resources management responsibilities.  Before that, she was in senior management at the Geneva Housing Authority.  Commissioner Guerreri’s experience also includes four years in the U.S. Army.

Amy Guerreri holds a MS degree in Management from Keuka College and a Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management from Empire State College.

In requesting confirmation of the appointment Administrator Mareane stated, “I share the search committee’s belief that Amy can continue to move us forward in all areas of HR, including our desire to be known as an employer of choice.”

Commissioner Guerreri expressed deep appreciation to the selection committee, and said she is honored to be chosen for the position, eager to start, and promised to serve Tomkins County to the best of her ability.

Tompkins County’s Personnel Commissioner leads and manages all aspects of the County’s personnel, human resources, civil service, and labor relations programs and activities.  The Commissioner serves as the County’s chief labor negotiator and is responsible for maintaining positive labor relationships, handling disciplinary actions, and working with management and staff to foster a positive, productive, fulfilling workplace environment.

Ms. Guerreri will begin her service with Tompkins County June 22.
