SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Gov. Gary Herbert is searching for a new chief of staff after Derek Miller announced he’s stepping down from the position.

Miller said Thursday he’s leaving to become the new president and CEO of World Trade Center Utah, an organization that seeks to create more international opportunities for Utah businesses.

Herbert says he has a “short list” of people he’s considering for chief of staff and expects to make a decision within the next three weeks.

Miller says he would stay on until the governor selects his replacement.

Miller became chief of staff in December 2010 after serving as deputy director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

The move is the latest in a series of high-level departures from the governor’s office in recent months.
