DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad’s chief of staff Matt Hinch says he is resigning for a career in the private sector.

Hinch announced his plans in a news release Wednesday, but did not provide details about his next job. His last day in the governor’s office will be Aug. 7.

The 35-year-old Hinch has been serving in his current role since 2013. He is the second chief of staff to Branstad since the governor returned to public office in 2011.

In a statement Branstad called Hinch an “exceptional leader,” noting his work on issues like student debt and infrastructure.

Branstad spokesman Jimmy Centers says the governor will name a new chief of staff in the near future.
