CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Gov. Maggie Hassan is nominating Glenn Perlow to head the New Hampshire Banking Department where he currently serves as its deputy.
Perlow will succeed Ron Wilbur whose term was up last month and did not seek reappointment.
Perlow lives in Concord and has been at the department for two years. He previously was a senior assistant attorney general.
The Banking Department is charged with protecting the public interest by ensuring the safety and soundness of banks and credit unions. It also regulates non-bank consumer loan lenders and loan brokers.
Hassan said she's confident Perlow's experience in the Banking and Justice Departments will enable him to ensure the department protects consumers.
Hassan plans to nominate Perlow at Wednesday's Executive Council meeting.
