SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Herbert named Richard Sperry the chairman of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission.
Sperry, a medical doctor, has served on the five-member commission since 2009. He will replace Sam Granato, whose term expired June 30, as commission chairman.
Herbert has also filled one of two vacancies on the commission, which oversees the sale of liquor, wine and high-alcohol content beer in the state. Last week, former state senator David Gladwell, an Ogden attorney, was confirmed to a four-year term on the commission.
Once the remaining commission seat is filled, a search is expected to get under way for a new executive director for the department. The current executive director, Dennis Kellen, has told the governor he is retiring.
