LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A U.S. Army veteran from Omaha will serve as Nebraska’s next director of Administrative Services.

Gov. Pete Ricketts announced Tuesday that he has chosen Byron Diamond as the agency’s new director.

Diamond recently retired as executive director of logistics for the Nebraska Military Department, where he oversaw the department’s supply chain and equipment maintenance programs. He also served as an executive for the department’s information technology operations.

Diamond replaces Larry Bare, a chief of staff for former Gov. Dave Heineman who served as the department’s temporary acting director.

The department includes state-government programs including accounting, personnel, and building services.

Diamond retired after 28 years of service as a U.S. Army Colonel in February 2015.

He will start March 30. His annual salary will be $115,000.
