William Floyd has been named executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW).

Floyd has been serving in an acting capacity since March 1, after the retirement of Dan Ellzey. Prior to serving as DEW chief of staff, Floyd specialized in certified labor and employment law and served on the SC Bar Employment and Labor Law Section and Military Law section.

“The Department of Employment and Workforce has been vital to South Carolina’s recent, record-breaking economic success,” Gov. Henry McMaster said in a statement. “William Floyd’s outstanding track record as a renowned labor and employment attorney and his experience as SCDEW chief of staff make him well-equipped to lead this critical agency and effectively bridge the gap between the state’s workforce and business community.”

Floyd was confirmed by the state Senate this week, as were McMaster-nominated leaders for two other state agencies.
