Hall Promoted to Administrative Coordinator to Oversee DOC’s Offender Information, Technology Branches
Kentucky Department of Corrections Deputy Commissioner Kimberly Potter-Blair today announced the promotion of Johnathan Hall to the position of Administrative Coordinator. Hall will oversee the department’s offender information and information technology branches.
Due to the depth of involvement of both of these branches in the development and administration of the Kentucky Offender Management System (KOMS), Hall will coordinate many operations of the KOMS project team.
“Johnathan Hall is a rising star in the Department of Corrections. He is someone that can always be counted on to get the job done, no matter how complicated or difficult the assignment,” said Blair. “We need his experience and outstanding work ethic to lead this important division within our department.”
Hall began his career with the Department of Corrections during his junior year in high school as a temporary employee for the Offender Information Services (OIS) branch. In October 2001 he was hired as a clerk and quickly worked his way up through the ranks. He was promoted to a supervisor’s position in OIS in April 2003. Three years later he was offered an opportunity with an outside business and elected to leave state government.
Within a year, Hall realized private industry was not for him and was rehired by DOC as a supervisor in the OIS branch. He continued his upward trek through the agency, receiving promotions in 2008 and again in 2010 when he was named OIS branch manager.
Hall received the agency’s top award, a “Commissioner’s Award,” in 2004 and 2008. In 2011, he was recognized for submission of an employee suggestion that resulted in annual savings of more than $500,000 to the department. He is a 2009 graduate of the Commissioner’s Executive Leadership program.
Hall currently resides in Frankfort with his wife Brichelle.
