Gov. Asa Hutchinson has named a new leader for the Arkansas Department of Veteran Affairs.
The governor said Friday that he's appointed retired U.S. Army Col. Nathaniel Todd to serve as the agency's director. Todd will replace former director Matt Snead, who is resigning.
Todd now serves as chief financial officer of the Central Arkansas Veterans Health Care System. He's previously worked as director of health financial policy for the U.S. Army Surgeon General and as chief financial officer for the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
He served in the U.S. Army for 37 years, including 33 years on active duty.
