Gov. Tony Evers appointed Randy Romanski to serve as secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Romanski has served as interim secretary of the agency since November.

“Wisconsin’s agricultural community has dealt with challenges for years, from low prices to trade wars to a global pandemic,” Evers says. “Randy has done an outstanding job leading DATCP through these challenging times, and I believe he’ll continue to do great work as secretary.”

Across his 30-year career in public service, Romanski has held leadership roles across various Wisconsin state agencies. He previously served as both the deputy secretary and secretary at DATCP under former Gov. Jim Doyle.

I look forward to continuing that work as we serve as a resource to Wisconsin’s diverse agriculture and consumer communities.”

Romanski replaces Brad Pfaff, whom the Republican-controlled Senate voted last November to fire after having served as state agriculture secretary designee from January through November.
