Gov. Walker Names New Dept. of Workforce Development Secretary

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker announced a new Secretary of the Department of Workforce Development after his initial appointee, Manny Perez, abruptly resigned after only about five months on the job. The new secretary, Scott Baumbach, was initially named deputy secretary of the department by Walker in January. From the Journal Sentinel article on the new appointment:

“Scott Baumbach has done a tremendous job in the Department of Workforce Development since day one, both as a deputy and interim secretary, and I know that he will continue to succeed in his new role,” Walker said in a statement.

Baumbach, was an associate and partner at Michael Best & Friedrich LLP law firm in Milwaukee from 2001-2010, and a law clerk for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Diane Sykes from 2000-2001.
