New City HR director

Mayor Nutter has appointed a former Philadelphia Gas Works vice president as the city’s director of human resources, a job previously known as personnel director. Albert D’Attilio last served as vice president of human resources for PGW. Nutter said he expected D’Attilio to modernize the renamed department. “I am tremendously confident that Al is more than equipped to transform this department,” Nutter said. The city’s previous personnel director, Tanya Smith, resigned two weeks ago after an inspector general investigation showed that she had tampered with a civil-service test to help a friend. Nutter said that episode should not diminish the entire department. “I think fortunately for us that was an highly unusual situation,” he said.
