Under his leadership, Christman’s safety programs have been recognized with a number of industry awards and distinctions, including the Safety Gold Award by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration for logging an unprecedented safety record of working 2.1 million hours without lost time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Michigan Technological University as well as many professional certifications. Staley represents industrial management and replaces Jim Cash, who resigned.

Staley will serve the remainder of a four-year term expiring Jan. 31, 2015, and his appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the state Senate.
