JOPLIN, Mo. —
A new human resources director will start Monday with the city of Joplin.
Dave Allgood, Miami, Okla., has been hired as the director of human resources and risk management to succeed Reba Snavely. Snavely retired April 1.
Sam Anselm, Joplin’s assistant city manager, said that Allgood most recently worked for O'Reilly Automotive as corporate claims manager at the company’s Springfield headquarters.
Prior to that he worked as vice president of risk managment/worker's compensation with Mutual Assurance Administrators in Oklahoma City. Before that job he was employed for 17 years as vice president of risk management/HR for Sitton Motor Line in Joplin.
The city had 26 applicants for the job, Anselm said, and interviewed six finalists.
