LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Mike Finney to the City of Flint Receivership Transition Advisory board.

The board was first named in April 2015 after the city of Flint transitioned back to local control.

“I am confident that Mike, a Flint native, will work diligently with local leaders to ensure continued financial stability, which is especially imperative as we work to transition executive authority back to Mayor Weaver,” Snyder said.

Finney, former executive director of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and current chief executive officer of Community Ventures of Michigan, was appointed to the post by Gov. Snyder on Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016. He replaces Dr. Robert McMahan, who resigned earlier this month.

Other members of the city of Flint RTAB include: Frederick Headen, representing the State Treasurer, David McGhee, representing members with relevant professional experience, and Beverly Walker-Griffea, representing members with relevant professional experience. Members serve at the pleasure of the governor.
