COLUMBUS, Ohio (4/26/13)--The Ohio Credit Union League plans to reach out to the state's new director of commerce, Andre Porter, to begin gauging his understanding of credit unions and their unique role in the financial services industry.
Gov. John Kasich appointed Porter, who served as a member of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, to the position earlier this month, said the league (eLumination Newsletter April 17). Porter is also a former attorney.
The Ohio Division of Financial Institutions, which regulates state-chartered credit unions, is part of the Department of Commerce.
