Mayor Karl Dean today announced that he has appointed Shannon Hall to serve as Metropolitan Clerk. Hall, a Nashville resident, has worked 10 years at Metro Human Resources and currently oversees the Metro Benefit Board and other HR divisions
“Shannon has effectively managed many integral parts of our Human Resources Department,” Mayor Dean said. “Keeping the city’s records is vitally important, and I am confident that Metro will be well served by Shannon.”
Mayor Dean today submitted Hall’s nomination, which will be subject to the confirmation of the Metro Council on Dec. 3. Vice Mayor Diane Neighbors joined Mayor Dean in interviewing finalists for the position.
“I am truly excited and honored to be appointed as Metro Clerk, and I want to extend my thanks to Mayor Dean and Vice Mayor Neighbors for giving me this opportunity to carry on my service with the Metropolitan Government,” Hall said. “I look forward to continuing the preservation of Nashville’s rich history.”
Hall is a graduate of Oglethorpe University in Atlanta and received a bachelor’s degree in business administration and behavioral science. She previously worked on the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games as a human resources project manager responsible for planning, recruiting and executing the development and maintenance of the NBC ground transportation staff.
“I am very excited about Shannon's appointment as the new Metro Clerk,” Vice Mayor Neighbors said. “Her passion for our city and her respect for its history are evident. I believe the skills she developed while working with the NBC Olympic division and her extensive record-keeping experience with Metro Human Resources, will enable her to thrive in this position.”

Hall takes over the Metro Clerk position from Ana Escobar, who left the position this month to take the position of deputy director of the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts.
