Governor Hassan Names Her Choice For Banking Commissioner

Governor Maggie Hassan plans to nominate Glenn Perlow, the current Deputy Commissioner of the New Hampshire Banking Department, for the top job. She’ll do so during the Executive Council Meeting on Wednesday.

“The role of the Banking Commissioner,” Perlow says, “is vitally important for maintaining the health of our financial institutions and keeping consumers safe from predatory practices.”

He says he looks forward to working with the Governor to ensure the safe flow of credit that will help the state’s economy grow.

Perlow, a resident of Concord, previously served as Senior Assistant Attorney General. He earned his J.D. from Lewis & Clark Law School in 1997.

The New Hampshire Banking Department supervises and supports all state-chartered financial institutions and adjudicates state financial law violations.

Perlow’s nomination must be confirmed by the Executive Council.
