CONCORD -; Gov. Maggie Hassan will nominate Steven Kelleher as acting commissioner of the Department of Information Technology and Amy Bassett as acting director of the Division of Travel and Tourism Development.
The nominations go to the Executive Council Tuesday for confirmation.
Kelleher has 30 years of experience in the IT field, with half that time working for the state, including work as the IT leader for the state Department of Health and Human Services.
Bassett worked most recently as deputy director of the Division of Travel and Tourism. She also worked with the Division of Parks and Recreation and has more than 20 years experience with programs critical to the success of the travel and tourism industry.
