CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The head of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development will step down at the beginning of April.

Nevada’s Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak accepted the resignation of the office’s executive director Paul Anderson on Friday. A search process to fill the position will also begin.

Anderson, a former Nevada legislator, has been in the role since January 2018. Sisolak thanked Anderson for his service and says he appreciated Anderson’s work in encouraging business expansions and diversifying the state’s economy. Sisolak says he knows Anderson “will continue to champion economic development in his future endeavors.”

A statement from the governor’s office says Anderson indicated he is leaving the role to “pursue new opportunities,” but it did not provide further information.
