Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The West Virginia Division of Personnel has a new director.
Sara P. Walker was named to the post by administration secretary Rob Ferguson on Tuesday.
The position has been vacant since former director Otis Cox left April 14.
Walker has been director of human resources for law firm Jackson Kelly since 1995.
Ferguson says Walker will help the agency complete a study on job classifications and compensation for state workers.
