On Monday, Gov. Kay Ivey appointed Nathan Lindsay the new Director of Appointments for the Governor’s Office.
Lindsay previously served as aide to the governor from 2006 to 2011. He has also worked as the deputy press secretary in the Communications Office, where he advised the governor on education policy.
Most recently, he worked at the Business Council of Alabama.
“Nathan brings to our team a wealth of knowledge that I know will serve the state well,” Ivey said. “In addition to his expertise and insight, Nathan is a man of character. The men and women of my staff must have a strong work ethic, a depth of knowledge and a heart for public service. Nathan certainly embodies all of these characteristics.”
He earned his bachelor’s degree from Faulkner University, where he served as SGA president. In 2018, he was awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award for the College of Arts and Sciences.
“As governor, I have the important responsibility of appointing qualified individuals to serve on the more than 450 boards and commissions in our state,” Ivey said. “These men and women must not only be highly-qualified, but they should also be a true reflection of our great state. I am confident we will continue to find the best people to serve our state, just as I am certain Nathan will serve my administration exceptionally well in this position. His experience speaks for itself, and he shares my goal of moving Alabama into a better future.”
He will begin the job on July 1, 2019.
