In this role, he helps manage the state’s cash flow, oversees College Savings Mississippi, and has returned more than $30 million in unclaimed money to Mississippians.

I am honored that my peers have recognized these accomplishments as well, and I look forward to sharing Mississippi’s best practices with others.”
