JACKSON — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has chosen a new state banking commissioner to succeed one who left more than a month ago.
Charlotte Corley of Madison has already begun working as commissioner, and will need to be confirmed by the state Senate during the 2015 legislative session.
In announcing the nomination Monday, Bryant says Corley has worked for the state Department of Banking and Consumer Finance for almost 30 years. In her most recent job as deputy commissioner, she worked with federal agencies to supervise licensed and chartered financial institutions in Mississippi.
In July 2012, Jerry Wilson of Columbus started what was supposed to be a four-year term as banking commissioner. Bryant spokesman Knox Graham says Wilson stepped down Sept. 30 to spend more time with family.
