SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control has promoted one of its managers to deputy director after a monthslong search to fill the position.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1OpjQ3E ) that the governor’s office announced Wednesday that Cade Meier will start as deputy director in January. He has worked with the department as an information technology project manager and a warehouse general manager.

Meier will be replacing Tom Zdunich, who retired in August.

Meier will begin his new role as the department has been under fire for its low employee salaries and high turnover rate. The DABC also faced criticism earlier this year for a new ordering system that caused some stores to run out of product.

Candidates for the deputy director position were vetted through a selection committee process.
