CARSON CITY — Deputy Director Dennis Perea has been appointed interim director of the state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation, succeeding Frank Woodbeck, who resigned.
Perea has been supervising the program to train workers for jobs and overseeing the Nevada Equal Rights Commission. He began his career in state government in January 2007.
Woodbeck resigned his job, which paid $127,721 a year, earlier this month to become director of the Nevada College Collaborative, a new program in the university system to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of community colleges in Nevada.
