Governor Abercrombie Appoints New DAGS Comptroller

News Release from February 1, 2012

HONOLULU – Governor Neil Abercrombie today announced the appointment of Dean Seki as State Comptroller to the Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS). Mr. Seki replaces Jan Gouveia who has been serving as the Interim Comptroller since October 2011. Ms. Gouveia will return to her position as Deputy Director of DAGS.

“Dean has been a member of the DAGS team for over a decade and is ready to lead the department in tackling present and future Capital Improvement Projects,” said Governor Abercrombie.

Since 2002, Mr. Seki has worked in the DAGS Public Works Division as a policy and planning analyst. He has been in state government since 1991, serving in staff positions at the Legislature and the Department of Taxation.

Mr. Seki’s appointment is subject to Senate confirmation.

In October 2011, then State Comptroller Bruce Coppa left DAGS to become the Governor’s Chief of Staff.

“I’m looking forward to working with Dean in his new role as we continue to make the necessary changes in our aging infrastructure and begin to transform our state government with needed technology,” said Mr. Coppa.
