Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele named Kimberly R. Walker, an attorney who has held top positions at Glendale-based Johnson Controls Inc., as Milwaukee County’s corporation counsel, which serves as the county’s legal advisor.
“Kimberly is an experienced attorney who has held top legal and administrative positions in the corporate world and state government,” Abele said. “She brings a breadth of legal knowledge, as well as expertise in human resources issues, that will greatly benefit Milwaukee County policymakers, administrators and taxpayers.”
Walker has served as director of HR compliance and employee relations for Johnson Controls’ Building Efficiency group since April.
