He also served as legal counsel in the Office of the State Treasurer. Washington Credit Union League President/CEO John Annaloro said the league was “extremely pleased” with Gov. Gregoire’s appointment. “Scott brings the promise of leadership and a well-developed knowledge of financial affairs to the DFI. We look forward to working with him in the near future,” said Annaloro.
