TOPEKA (AP) -- Kansas Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman has made changes in the department's top management because of the departures of two high-level administrators.

Rodman announced Tuesday the immediate promotion of Assistant Secretary Jackie McClaskey to deputy secretary. McClaskey has worked in the Agriculture Department since January 2011.

Erik Wisner will become assistant secretary for administrative services next week. He is now a special assistant on regulatory and policy matters.

Chad Bontrager will become an assistant secretary in August, overseeing agribusiness development, food safety and lodging inspections and the state's weights and measures program. He is currently agribusiness development coordinator.

They'll replace Assistant Secretary Kim Christiansen, a Fort Hays State University alum, who will become executive director at the utility-regulating Kansas Corporation Commission, and Assistant Secretary Jim Riemann, who's retiring in August.
