Gov. Bill Haslam has tapped Larry Martin to oversee implementation of the Tennessee Excellence and Accountability Management Act.
Martin, who will assume his new role as special assistant to the governor on May 23, will coordinate and collaborate throughout state government agencies the recruiting of new employees, the updating of department performance evaluations and the reviewing of employee compensation, which includes the salary study funded in the governor’s fiscal year 2013-14 budget.
“Getting the TEAM Act passed into law was only the beginning of our work,” Haslam said in a release. “Now we must make sure it is implemented effectively, which includes creating meaningful performance evaluations, truly getting a full picture of employee compensation, and changing the culture now that we can recruit the best and brightest to serve. I am grateful that Larry has agreed to take on this challenge for the taxpayers of Tennessee.”
From September 2006 to December 2011, Martin (seen with Haslam in this 2006 photo) served as Knoxville deputy mayor for both Haslam and Mayor Daniel Brown. He was responsible for finance, public works, community development, information systems, purchasing and risk management.
Prior to joining city government, Martin was an executive of First Horizon/First Tennessee Bank. He joined the company in 1969 and served in various capacities. Martin moved to Knoxville in 1987 when he was named president of First Tennessee Bank Knoxville.
Martin received his bachelor of science from the University of Tennessee College of Business.
