NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has named Larry Martin the new commissioner of the state Department of Finance and Administration.

Martin has been the interim commissioner since June 1. The 65-year-old succeeded Mark Emkes, who retired in May.

Martin joined the governor's staff last year as a special assistant to the governor and helped oversee implementation of Haslam's civil service reform legislation.

From September 2006 to December 2011, Martin served as deputy to the mayor in Knoxville for both Haslam and Mayor Daniel Brown. His responsibilities included finance, public works and community development.
