Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he is naming Laurie Gill as commissioner of the Bureau of Human Resources.
Gill already serves in Daugaard's cabinet as Human Services secretary, a position she has held since 2011. She's also the part-time mayor of Pierre.
Daugaard says Gill is an experienced manager, and the state will benefit from her strong leadership.
Gill has also worked in the Department of Health and as the administrator of Medical Associates Clinic in Pierre.
Gill replaces Commissioner Sandy Zinter, who retired earlier this year. The appointment is effective Sept. 3.
