Swan has served as president and CEO of the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) since May 2017. He was previously the special adviser to the deputy minister to the premier.

“Cam Swan’s depth of experience and reputation as a hardworking and respected civil servant will be an asset in providing leadership to Saskatchewan’s public service,” Moe said in a press release.

“I look forward to working with Cam over the coming years as our government continues to stand up for the best interests of Saskatchewan people.”

Swan will replace Kent Campbell, who served in an interim capacity since August 2017 when he stepped in for former deputy minister Alanna Koch.

Koch took an unpaid leave of absence after announcing she was running for leader of the Saskatchewan Party. Her employment with the province ended on June 1.

All appointments are effective July 16.
