Gov. Hickenlooper announces resignation of Executive Director of Personnel & Administration

DENVER —Friday, Dec. 21 2018 — Gov. John Hickenlooper today announced that June Taylor has accepted the chief operating officer role with the Colorado Office of the Attorney General and is leaving the Department of Personnel & Administration (DPA).

“Every team deserves a leader like June,” said Governor John Hickenlooper. “She pours her heart and soul into serving nearly 30,000 state employees, ever mindful of the uniqueness of each individual. We appreciate her dedication to ensuring the wellness of state employees and increasing the efficiency of state government.”

In her time at DPA, Taylor enjoyed a number of accomplishments aimed at improving and refining state government. She helped launch the first statewide competency model, which defines career development through skill-based learning for state employees. Under her leadership, DPA enhanced the branding of the State of Colorado as an employer of choice by leading a statewide effort to reduce barriers to recruitment.

Taylor improved the way the state does business by amending and modernizing the state’s procurement code and fiscal rules. And DPA, in cooperation with the Governor’s Office of Information Technology, is currently shepherding the implementation of a new human resources information system, that will modernize and streamline payroll and HR administration systems for all state agencies.

Taylor will remain part of the Hickenlooper Administration until the term ends on Jan. 8, 2019.
