Neal has an extensive background in human resources, spending the last 16 years serving in various roles in Washington state government. Most recently, Neal served as the acting human resources director for the UTC since Sept. 2023, and her permanent appointment was finalized on Feb. 16.

“Amy is a great addition to the UTC team,” said Executive Director Jeff Killip. “Her depth of knowledge, extensive experience, and solution-oriented mindset will serve our existing and future workforce well.”
