GREENVILLE — City Manager Massoud Ebrahim has announced the hiring of Jaynice Porter- Brathwaite as the new Human Resources Director for the city. The appointment follows the retirement this winter of Barry Robinson after 33 years of service.

Prior to her work there, Porter-Brathwaite served as Human Resources and Civil Service Director for the City of Forest Hill in Tarrant County. Forest Hill is a suburb of Fort Worth and has a population of slightly more than 12,000 citizens. Porter-Brathwaite also served as Risk Manager for both Forest Hill and Nacogdoches.

Porter-Brathwaite holds a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from the University of Delaware. She has dual Master’s degrees from Goldey Beacom College in Wilmington, DE; one in Business Administration and one in Management.

In addition to her education and employment backgrounds, Porter-Brathwaite serves on the Executive Board Committee for the Deep East Texas Self-Insurance Fund. She is a member of the Texas Municipal Human Resources Association, the Society for Human Resource Management and the International Public Management Association for Human Resources.

“We are excited to have Jaynice join our team,” said Ebrahim. “She is highly educated and skilled in the Human Resources field. Jaynice brings with her experience that will be a valuable asset to our City, both from the public and private sectors. We look forward to working with her.”

Porter-Brathwaite will join the City staff today.
