Bevin appoints public protection secretary and revenue commissioner

Gov. Matt Bevin continued making appointments Monday to his new administration, naming former Barren County Judge-Executive David A. Dickerson to be secretary of the Public Protection Cabinet and former Lexmark official Daniel Bork to be commissioner of the Department of Revenue.

Dickerson was Barren County’s chief official from 1994 to 1999. He most recently was corporate officer for his family business, Dickerson Lumber Company.

Bork recently retired as vice president of tax for Lexmark International, Inc., a $3.7 billion global technology company. He became vice president in May 2001. He joined Lexmark in 1996 as director of tax after nearly 20 years of experience in U.S. and international tax matters.

Bork previously was senior director of tax for Cray Research Inc. in Eagan, Minn. He also held various senior-level positions with Coopers & Lybrand, L.L.P. in Minneapolis, including director of international tax services.

He also has held two six-year terms on the board of directors of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, where he held several different positions.
