PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced today that he will appoint Catherine Duenwald chief hearing examiner.
Duenwald is currently general counsel for the Bureau of Administration. “Catherine has served the bureau well and will continue to do so in her new role as the chief hearing examiner,” said BOA Commissioner Jeff Holden.
Duenwald has served the state of South Dakota for over 15 years.
“The office has a long history of impartiality and fairness,” said Duenwald. “I look forward to protecting the high integrity of the Office of Hearing Examiners.”
Duenwald will replace Hillary Brady who passed away earlier this year following a long battle with cancer.
