West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has filled a Putnam County Senate seat left vacant when he selected Mike Hall to be his new chief of staff.

Mark A. Drennan was appointed by the governor to the District 4 post, according to a news release from the governor’s office. Since 2011, Drennan has served as executive director of the West Virginia Behavioral Health Care Providers Association.

Hall, a Republican, was picked to be Justice’s new chief of staff in mid-August, filling a job that was left vacant after the governor fired Nick Casey.

Drennan previously served as chief strategy officer for the Children’s Home Society. He has a bachelor of arts degree in psychology and a master of social work from West Virginia University. He lives in Teays Valley with his wife, Sarah, and sons, Alec and Connor.
