(SD)-Noem Names Interim BHR Commissioner
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has appointed Thomas Steckel interim commissioner of the Bureau of Human Resources. Steckel, the agency's director of employee benefits, temporarily fills the vacancy created by Noem's appointment of Laurie Gill as Secretary of Social Services.
Noem calls Steckel "a critical part of the leadership team at the Bureau of Human Resources," while Steckel says he looks forward to working with the Republican governor "as we continue supporting state employees and making the state a premier place to work."
Steckel has been employee benefits director since 2014, managed the State Employee Health Plan program and the state worker's compensation program.
