Curt Eysink was appointed executive director of the Louisiana Workforce Commission by Gov. Bobby Jindal in July 2009.

• Become one of the top 10 states for people served by its Workforce Investment Act program.
• Expanded its workforce development programs to include Louisiana Rehabilitation Services.
• Re-engineered the unemployment insurance system into a re-employment program.
• Made the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund one of the five strongest in the nation.
