HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor will leave his post in January to join Rhode Island Gov.-Elect Gina Raimondo’s administration as that state’s first Secretary of Commerce.

Raimondo made the announcement Tuesday afternoon in a press release.

“Stefan Pryor has the depth of experience and the drive to help me lead Rhode Island’s comeback,” Raimondo said. “Stefan’s economic development successes in Newark and in Lower Manhattan are a testament to his ability to lead the Department of Commerce in Rhode Island. Our focus from day one will be on creating opportunities for everyone by making Rhode Island a place where companies want to invest and grow.”
