Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development Secretary Dominick Murray is making an early exit from Gov. Martin O’Malley’s Cabinet.

Little more than two weeks before Gov.-elect Larry Hogan takes the oath of office, Murray resigned his post Monday. He was first appointed to head DBED in 2012.

Murray’s resignation was first reported by The Daily Record. A statement from Murray (including his future plans) was not available from a DBED spokeswoman, who confirmed the Record report. Prior to heading DBED, Murray had served as deputy secretary since 2007, and worked on economic development efforts for Baltimore city under then-Mayor O’Malley.

Hogan has yet to name his pick to lead DBED.

The move comes as Hogan has signaled a change of direction for the agency’s economic development priorities.

Murray isn’t the first O’Malley cabinet official to exit ahead of Hogan’s inauguration. Health Secretary Joshua Sharfstein stepped down at the end of December for a job at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
