State human resources chief retires

Vicki Tokita has retired as Idaho's director of human resources, Gov. Butch Otter announced; her retirement was effective Jan. 1. Tokita had worked for the state for 37 years, including 19 in human resources; she was named head of the Division of Human Resources in February of 2011. David Fulkerson has been named as interim administrator until a successor is appointed.

Otter praised Tokita's service. “Vicki has done a great job keeping our agencies informed and aligned with our statewide human resources objectives,” he said. “Her experience and collaborative style of working through these often difficult issues has set a standard of excellence. I’m confident she has prepared the Division of Human Resources well for the challenges ahead, but Vicki will be sorely missed.”

Tokita said, “I was proud to serve the citizens of Idaho in many capacities, and now I’m off to serve my family.”
