State Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch permanently has appointed Summer Shannon-Bradley as the Division of State Facilities administrator.
Shannon-Bradley, who also serves as secretary to the state Building Commission, has been interim administrator since August, when Jeff Plale left the job to become the state’s railroad commissioner.
The DSF administrator is the top official in the Department of Administration’s building division, which manages hundreds of millions of dollars a year in construction projects.
The announcement was made in a Thursday morning email attributed to Huebsch and sent to all DOA employees. Messages left for Shannon-Bradley and the press offices of both Gov. Scott Walker and the DOA were not immediately returned.
Shannon-Bradley served as a staff member for Plale from 2007 to 2011 while Plale was a state senator. She also was a clerk for the Senate Committee on Commerce, Utilities, Energy and Rail.
