PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo has nominated her pick for the state’s new revenue director.
The Democrat says Robert Hull has deep management experience in the financial industry.
She’s submitting his name to the state Senate.
Hull was chief financial officer at Ally Financial Inc., the Detroit-based automotive financial firm called GMAC Inc. at the time of its bailout during the financial crisis.
He worked with the U.S. Treasury Department to pay off federal assistance from the Troubled Asset Relief Program.
Hull most recently worked at Providence Equity Partners.
He was in senior finance positions at Bank of America and a board member of the Providence Foundation.
The revenue department has a $478 million budget and more than 500 employees.
It handles the state lottery, motor vehicles, municipal finance and taxation.
