Curtis Thayer has been named commissioner for the Alaska Department of Administration.
Gov. Sean Parnell named Thayer to the position Monday. Thayer had been filling in as acting Commissioner since last month following the resignation of Becky Hultberg.
Before that, Thayer served as deputy Administration commissioner. His responsibilities as deputy commissioner included the divisions of general services, personnel and labor relations, administrative services, and motor vehicles.
According to Parnell’s office, Thayer’s prior work includes serving as a deputy commissioner in the state commerce department, working for ENSTAR Natural Gas Co. and serving as a congressional aide.
