Riverside Welcomes New Human Resource Director


The former Chief Human Resource (HR) Officer for Orange County, Brenda Diederichs, has accepted a new role as Riverside County’s HR director. In her new role, Diederichs also holds the title of Assistant County Executive Officer. 

Diederichs has more than 20 years’ experience in the public sector involving learning management systems, labor-relations negotiations and policy/contract development. In addition to her time with Orange County, she was HR Director for the City of Riverside for two years and the Executive Officer for Labor/Employee Relations and Human resources for seven years with the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Diederichs is described as an active member of the state bar and boasts 19 years as a practicing labor and employment law attorney.

When County Executive Officer George Johnson announced Diederichs’ appointment he wrote, “Brenda will be invaluable as we work to implement an automated human-resources system and complete the HR transformation that is under way.”

Johnson added, “She also brings experience in health-and-wellness initiatives, including a national award-winning wellness program.” The award bestowed by the National Association of Counties was for Orange County’s Healthy Steps Wellness.

Diederichs, who assumed her new role as the county’s HR Director earlier this month, replaced Michael T. Stock, who retired in February after serving in that capacity for about five years.
