Kathy Manderino is leaving her job as secretary of the state's Department of Labor & Industry to take a three-year turn as a commissioner on the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

The move takes effect Aug. 1, according to a press release from the office of Gov. Tom Wolf.

Manderino will be replaced by Robert O'Brien, who will be the acting secretary at L&I. He is currently the department's executive deputy secretary.

A former state legislator from the Philadelphia area, Manderino has led L&I since 2015, where she inherited a conflict over funding for upgrades to the state's unemployment compensation system.

Before joining the department, she was campaign manager for the Campaign for Fair Education Funding, a statewide coalition that advocates for a fair and adequate funding formula for public education in Pennsylvania.

"Being chosen by Gov. Wolf to lead the Department of Labor and Industry is one of my greatest honors, and I look forward to a new chapter on the gaming board," Manderino said.

O’Brien joined L&I in 2003 as director of the Bureau of Labor Law Compliance He was executive deputy secretary from 2008 until leaving the department in 2011 to become the principal and managing director of the North Second Street Group, according to the press release. He rejoined the department in 2015, according to an L&I spokesperson.
