DES MOINES – Gov. Kim Reynolds Friday announced her appointment of Dan Huitink to serve as an appointed member of the State Judicial Nominating Commission. Huitink fills the new position on the Commission that was created by the judicial selection reform legislation signed by Gov. Reynolds on Wednesday.

“I believe Dan Huitink will best represent the people of Iowa in their judicial selection process,” said Gov. Reynolds.

“Watching my father serve on the district court and court of appeals has given me a tremendous respect for Iowa’s independent judiciary,” said Huitink, “and I am honored to have the opportunity to help ensure Iowans continue to have high quality judges who will be fair and impartial.”

Huitink, of Pella, Iowa, is deputy general counsel at Vermeer Corporation. He has previously practiced law with a large national law firm, served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Northern District of Iowa, and clerked for Judge Michael J. Melloy on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. He received his undergraduate degree from Central College and his law degree from the University of Iowa College of Law, where he graduated first in his class. Huitink is a deputy member of the Iowa Business Council and previously served as a member of the Board of Governors of the Iowa State Bar Association.

Huitink’s appointment is effective immediately, and he will participate as the Commission conducts its first election for chair in the coming weeks. Subject to his confirmation by the Senate, he will serve a term that expires on April 30, 2024.

The Associated Press reports that Dan Huitink contributed money to Reynold’s campaign.
