Beverly Neth is leaving to take a new job in Omaha
Governor Dave Heineman announced Monday that Neth is leaving to become CEO of the National Safety Council's Nebraska office. Neth will remain in the governor's cabinet until Jan. 31.
Heineman praised Neth for her efforts to modernize Nebraska's driver's licensing practices. Neth managed seven state divisions with an annual budget of $17 million and more than 175 full-time employees. The agency's website was upgraded during her tenure to provide 20 online services to the public.
The 50-year-old Neth was appointed by former Governor Mike Johanns in 1999. She previously had served as deputy director and legal counsel for the Nebraska Department of Administrative Services, and also worked as a private attorney.
