Ruben Nieto, the city’s human resources director and a longtime municipal employee, plans to retire May 6 after more than 10 years.
“It has been extremely fulfilling to recruit and support Issaquah’s extraordinary team of employees during the last decade,” he said in a release.
The city announced the retirement Wednesday.
Nieto oversees the recruitment, selection, retention of municipal employees, plus labor and employee relations, as human resources director. The city Human Resources Department also supports all City Hall staff, and ensures Issaquah’s personnel policies and procedures comply with employment laws.
Before joining the city, Nieto worked as a manager for the King County Office of Human Resources and the county parks department.
City Council members appointed Nieto, a city resident, to the city Park Board last week. He also served as a previous member of the board.
Beyond City Hall, Nieto serves in the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah and on the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank board.
