PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Pat Costello is leaving his post as commissioner of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development for an opportunity in the private sector.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard said Thursday that Costello will depart at the end of June. He has been commissioner since 2011.

The governor says Costello has been a great representative for South Dakota. Daugaard says the state has added thousands of jobs under Costello’s leadership.

Deputy Commissioner Aaron Scheibe will take over in an interim capacity starting July 1.
