The Office of Management and Budget today named Molly Herrington as the Director of Leadership and Learning.

“In this high-impact role, Molly’s experience and expertise will help us continue to support our mission of developing strong leaders in state government,” Office of Management and Budget Director Joe Morrissette said. “We are thrilled to have her join Team ND.”

A native of New Rockford, North Dakota, Herrington brings over a decade of leadership and training experience. In Herrington’s most recent position as Young Professional Development Program Manager at KLJ, she designed and implemented a progressive three-year training program that targeted, trained and retained top talent.

“Molly is the perfect candidate to help foster an environment of forward-thinking team members,” Chief People Officer Lisa Kudelka stated. “Her experience will be an asset to the state as we continue to provide opportunities to inspire and develop all members of Team ND.”

“I am excited to serve the employees and agencies of North Dakota in this capacity,” Herrington said. “With a focused approach on leadership and learning, the state of North Dakota will continue to be a destination employer where team members can establish and grow their careers.”

The Director of Leadership and Learning, a position previously held by Chris Thompson, is responsible for implementing strategic initiatives that help engage and grow North Dakota leaders within state government through training and learning opportunities.

Herrington will assume her new role on September 23.
