Gov. Terry Branstad has named a senior counsel to West Des Moines-based insurer Aviva USA to the district court bench in Iowa's 5th Judicial District.

Christopher McDonald, of Des Moines, will fill a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Don Nickerson.

McDonald was in private practice before his current post. He received his undergraduate degree from Grand View University in 1997 and his law degree from the University of Iowa in 2001.

The 5th district covers 16 counties in central and southern Iowa, including Polk County.
