Keith Fogleman, an executive level human resources professional with over 35 years of experience in the utility industry in human resources and labor relations, will fill the last remaining slot in the leadership of Hamilton County Schools as chief talent officer.

The hire was announced on Tuesday by Superintendent Dr. Bryan Johnson and the addition of Mr. Fogleman completes his leadership team "poised to direct Hamilton County Schools to be the fastest improving school system in Tennessee." 

The reorganization of Hamilton County Schools to maximize efforts to improve student performance and system efficiency began last month with the announcement of a new organizational structure.  The system will move away from an assistant superintendent based structure to a more streamlined approach to build an organization able to move quickly and efficiently to implement improvements for the education of children, it was stated.

Officials said Mr.

Fogleman is experienced in labor relations, compensation, benefits, workforce planning, talent management, leadership development and succession planning in business and industry.  Since 2013, he has provided consulting services in human resources to major electric utilities in the United States and Japan. The work included TVA’s Watts Bar Nuclear Plant Unit 2 startup.  Fogleman has worked with Tokyo Electric Power, Omaha Public Power District, Entergy’s Nuclear Division and TVA.

“Hamilton County Schools is excited to welcome aboard a talented human resources professional of the caliber of Keith Fogleman,” said Dr. Johnson. “To become the fastest improving school district in Tennessee the system will of necessity be required to find, train and retain the very best educational talent to work with our children in the classroom. The addition of Keith Fogleman and the new organizational structure now in place will allow the system to attain new heights of success indicative of the amazing community we serve and the children relying on us to provide a bright future for them and their families.” 

The addition of Mr. Fogleman as chief talent officer completes the administrative “C-suite” recommended by the Transition Team put in place to recommend improvements in the educational program of Hamilton County when Dr. Johnson became superintendent.  The working group’s task was to identify opportunities for improvement to incorporate into the district’s strategic plan.  The team, made up of 38 industry leaders, community members, national experts and educational leaders has focused on student achievement, postsecondary readiness, talent development, organizational efficiency, communications and stakeholder engagement.

“We are moving full speed ahead with improvements in our schools developed in cooperation with our community because it is the right thing to do for our children,” Dr. Johnson said. “We are extremely fortunate to bring the high level of talent aboard from the state level, private industry and larger school systems in the southeast to mix with the excellent education professionals added to the C-suite already working hard for the children in the community. Fortunately, the draw of our Chattanooga area has helped us to attract the very best talent available that will move us forward for the future of children and our community.”
