SIOUX FALLS (AP) - The Republican Party of South Dakota says it has selected a new executive director.

Ryan Budmayr will assume his new duties on March 1. He currently serves as director of business development for Lemonly, a visual design agency in Sioux Falls.

Budmayr served as west river director on Governor Dennis Daugaard's first campaign in 2010. He later worked as a business development representative and director of international trade in the Governor's Office of Economic Development until 2014.

Chair Pam Roberts says Budmayr is ready to help build on the party's already strong majorities in South Dakota.

Budmayr is a native of Belle Fourche. He attended the University of South Dakota, majoring in political science and serving as student body president and chair of the South Dakota College Republicans.
