Mike Campbell appointed to workers’ comp panel

Gov. Nikki Haley has appointed Mike Campbell to the S.C. Workers’ Compensation Commission.

The Greenville News reported Wednesday that Haley cited Campbell’s business experience and community involvement in the appointment.

Campbell is a business development consultant and a son of the late Gov. Carroll Campbell. Mike Campbell lost to Henry McMaster this year in his second bid for lieutenant governor.

Haley’s office said Campbell will be paid $116,000 a year for his commission work.

In 2003, Campbell was appointed to the governing board of the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, where he served as vice chairman. He also served as chairman of the Law Enforcement Advisory Committee for eight years.
