Nordberg previously led the human resources department at Massachusetts General Hospital and Dartmouth College. She will begin work at Vanderbilt, which has about 20,000 employees in September.
“Vanderbilt is fortunate to have someone of Traci’s caliber to lead our human resource function,” said Jerry Fife, vice chancellor for administration at Vanderbilt. “She received unanimous support from the search committee and the leadership team.”
Nordberg served the 20,000 employees at Massachusetts General from 1996 to 2005. Following that she served as chief HR officer at Dartmouth, which had about 5,000 employees at its undergraduate school, medical school and school of business.
