West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has picked the director of a General Motors dealership as the state's new DMV commissioner.

The Republican governor announced the appointment of Everett Frazier in a Thursday news release.

He says Frazier has more than 30 years experience in the auto industry, most recently as the director of operations at the Thornhill GM Superstore in Logan County.

Frazier says he wants to use technology to make the DMV more efficient and customer-friendly.

Frazier has also resigned as a member on the state's pharmacy board to assume the new DMV role.

His appointment is effective Monday.
