WASHINGTON, D.C. — Allison McGinn has been appointed executive director of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ human resources office.

The appointment was announced Dec. 31. McGinn’s appointment takes effect Jan. 7.

She succeeds Theresa Ridderhoff, who was appointed an associate general secretary of the USCCB effective Jan. 1.

“Allison has a wealth of experience as a human resources professional,” said Msgr. Brian Bransfield, USCCB general secretary, in a Dec. 31 statement. “I am confident that her skills and abilities will be of tremendous value to the USCCB and I am grateful to her for accepting this important position in service to the bishops and to the church.”

Prior to the USCCB position, McGinn has been self-employed as a human resources consultant, working with firms in the areas of performance management, employee benefits and compensation, recruiting, policy and compliance. Previously, McGinn oversaw the human resources function for organizations in the government contracting and airline industries, including over 18 years of service with US Airways.

She has a bachelor’s degree in educational psychology from Mississippi State University, and holds senior-level certifications in human resources from both the Society for Human Resources Management and the Human Resources Certification Institute.

McGinn lives in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia, with her husband and two daughters. They attend the Basilica of St. Mary Church in Alexandria.
