Brian Dickerson, human resources director for the city of Mesquite, has accepted the same position with the city of Fort Worth.

 

Dickerson begins his duties on Jan. 13, 2014 after a human resources career spanning more than 20 years.

 

Dickerson, who served four years as regional vice president for CIGNA HealthCare’s Government and Education segment in Plano before moving to Mesquite in 2011, oversaw human resources and risk management in Mesquite. He spearheaded an initiative allowing the city to save more than $1.5 million in health-care costs in a two-year period, according to a news release.

 

He also served four years as human resources director for the city of Farmers Branch, eight years as human resources manager for the city of Arlington, and three years with the state of Texas as a regional director in the Department of Human Resources and as a human resources management director in the Department of Protective and Regulatory Services.

 

Dickerson succeeds Karen Marshall, who left the city earlier this year to accept out-of-state employment. Dickerson’s annual salary will be $148,000, said city spokesman Bill Begley.
