CONCORD – Following unanimous Executive Council confirmation today of Governor Hassan's appointees to head the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) and the New Hampshire Banking Department, the Governor issued the following statement:
"The confirmations of Jeff Rose as DRED Commissioner and Glenn Perlow as Banking Commissioner are important steps forward for New Hampshire's innovation economy. Jeff Rose's experience in both the public and private sectors will help DRED lead the way in supporting and attracting innovative businesses with good jobs that can support middle-class families. And Glenn Perlow's work at the Banking and Justice Departments will be invaluable as he leads the Banking Department's efforts to keep our financial sector strong and ensure access to credit and capital for our people and businesses. I applaud the Executive Council for confirming these dedicated public servants and look forward to working with them both to build a stronger, more innovative New Hampshire."
