Noem Names Interim Commissioner of Human Resources

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Governor Kristi Noem today announced that Thomas Steckel will serve as Interim Commissioner of the Bureau of Human Resources (BHR). This follows the appointment of current BHR Commissioner Laurie Gill as Secretary of Social Services. Steckel’s appointment is effective July 9, 2019.

 

“Tom has been a critical part of the leadership team at the Bureau of Human Resources,” said Noem. “I’m grateful for his willingness to lead during this interim period.”

 

“The Bureau of Human Resources plays an integral role in ensuring the continued success of state government,” said Steckel. “I look forward to working with Governor Noem as we continue supporting state employees and making the state a premier place to work.”

 

Steckel currently serves as director of employee benefits within BHR, a position he has held since 2014. In this role, he has managed the budget and execution of the State Employee Health Plan program and worker’s compensation program.
