PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard has named a new commissioner for the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

Daugaard says Scott Stern will take over the post Sept. 1. He replaces former Commissioner Pat Costello, who stepped down at the end of June.

Daugaard says Stern will be a “great leader” for the state’s economic development efforts.

Stern worked for nearly three decades with Stern Oil Company of Freeman. Over the past four years, he’s been with Petro-Canada America, which is a division of Canada-based Suncor Energy.

Stern says he looks forward to helping South Dakota businesses grow.
