The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission today chose Tina Eick to become the new administrator of the organization. Eick has been the deputy director and was named the interim administrator since Brian Ohorilko left the position for a job in the private sector in December.

Commission member Amy Burkhardt led the search subcommittee and says they had nine candidates and held three interviews. “Throughout the feedback received and throughout that process hit became very evident that we already have the person in place who is the best candidate to lead our commission forward. And that would be Tina Eick,” she says.
