Topeka – The Senate voted to confirm the appointment of David Toland to serve as Secretary of Commerce for the state of Kansas on Monday, April 1, in a 23 – 14 vote.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead this Department and to work alongside the Commerce team to bring prosperity to all corners of our state,” Secretary Toland said. “I want to thank Governor Kelly for selecting me to fill this role and I am so grateful to have her confidence and support.”

“I’m pleased the Senate voted to confirm David Toland as our Secretary of Commerce. He represents the best and brightest this state has to offer,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “His energy, expertise and collaborative style will ensure that businesses have the partner they deserve and that the Kansas economy continues to grow. David is a seventh generation Kansan who has given back to his hometown of Iola, as well as so many other communities across the state. Now is the time for Secretary Toland to get to work on behalf of our entire state.”

Secretary Toland served as President and CEO of Thrive Allen County, a not-for-profit economic development organization, for 12 years. He previously worked as an appointee of Washington, DC Mayor Anthony A. Williams. During his time in the District, Toland held a variety of positions, including Deputy Chief Operating Officer in the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, and was later appointed as Chief of Staff in the Office of Planning.
