West Virginia Commissioner of Agriculture Walt Helmick has announced that Eric Ewing, now Plant Industries Division Assistant Director, has been appointed to the director's post. 

Ewing, a Fayette County resident, moved into the top job Nov. 1.

Ewing started with the WVDA in 1995. He holds a bachelor's degree in biology from Concord University and a master's degree in biology from Marshall University.

He began his duties with the WVDA as a nursery inspector and then became supervisor of the Plant Pest Regulatory Programs Unit. He was promoted to assistant director in 2011.
