Governor Henry McMaster nominated Mark Elam as the next chairman of the South Carolina Board of Health and Environmental Control.

Having formerly served as chief of staff and senior legal counsel to Governor Carroll Campbell, Elam most recently served as an executive at Boeing South Carolina and was responsible for community and state and local government outreach.

"I am confident that Mr. Elam will provide the leadership at the Department of Health and Environmental Control that South Carolinians deserve – striking the necessary balance between protecting our state’s invaluable natural resources and allowing South Carolina businesses to grow and thrive without being subjected to burdensome overregulation, all while promoting and protecting public health in our great state," said Gov. Henry McMaster.
