CONCORD — The New Hampshire State Prison for men in Concord is getting a new warden.

Michael Zenk of Lyons, Ohio, was selected following a nationwide search.

Since 2012, Zenk has been the deputy court administrator of the Toledo, Ohio, Municipal Court. Before that he worked as superintendent of the New Castle, Indiana, Correctional Facility and warden of the Moshannon Valley Correctional Center in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania.

From 1986 until 2007 he held a number of positions in the U.S. Bureau of Prisons including warden of the U.S. Penitentiary in Atlanta, warden of the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, and warden of the Federal Correctional Institution of Allenwood, Pennsylvania.

He succeeds Richard Gerry, who retired in July.
