JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Gov. Phil Bryant has reappointed Charlotte Corley as the state’s banking commissioner.

Corley was first appointed to the post in November 2014.

In a news release Thursday, Bryant said he was pleased to reappoint Corley, who he says, has proved herself as an effective leader of the Department of Banking and Consumer Finance and has operated the agency with efficiency and integrity.

The banking commissioner is responsible for oversight of financial institutions chartered under state authority and will ensure that those institutions comply with Mississippi’s banking laws and regulations.

Corley has 30 years with the department. After joining the department in 1985 as a bank examiner, she worked her way through the ranks to become Banking Division Director in 2000, then Deputy Commissioner in 2013.
