The Boyertown resident most recently worked at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center, where he was the interim director of Human Resources.

The married father of two is a 1990 graduate of Penn State University with a degree in Economics.

He talked last week about why he enjoys his job. "You can't find a more dynamic environment than a hospital," he said. "It's not a job where you have to deal with the same things every day. The challenges change every day. I enjoy the ability to have a positive impact on the community where we serve to make a difference."

Explaining the importance of his role in Human Resources, he said, "We recognize that our strongest asset is our employees... With the leadership of new CEO Steve Tullman, we have the initiative to attract the best and the brightest.

"It's all about building relationships with employees," he said. "We develop the trust that people deserve. If they have issues and concerns, Human Resources is one of the many place that they can go to get answers."

The new human resources director said that his main focus is to administer policy, which affects employee benefits.

He is concerned that both employees and their families receive proper medical coverage.

Part of his job also deals with employee recruitment and retention.

"We want to retain the current workforce that we have," said Hoffman.

The new director is certified through the Society of Human Resources as a Senior Professional in Human Resources and is currently enrolled in a Master's Program in Human Resources Studies through Corneal University's School of Industrial Labor and Relations.

In addition, Hoffman said he enjoys golf and watching Philadelphia sports teams. He coaches soccer and basketball for 8- to 13-year-olds .

"I try to impart some wisdom on youth and influence in a positive way," he said.
