Neault previously served as emergency programs manager for the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Animal Industry Division. His work in Michigan included time as animal disease and traceability coordinator and poultry programs manager.
He will begin in April and replace current state veterinarian and LPH director Boyd Parr upon his retirement at the end of June after 17 years at Clemson.
