Governor Hassan to Nominate Deputy Treasurer Bill Dwyer to Serve as Commissioner of the Treasury

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan today announced that she will be nominating Deputy State Treasurer William F. Dwyer of Gilford to serve as Commissioner of the Treasury. Dwyer would serve until a new treasurer is elected by the Legislature to replace State Treasurer Catherine Provencher, who recently accepted the position of Vice Chancellor for Financial Affairs and Treasurer for the University System of New Hampshire.

"It is critical that we maintain steady and effective leadership of New Hampshire's Treasury in order to protect taxpayer dollars and our state's financial future," Governor Hassan said. "Bill Dwyer's experience as Deputy State Treasurer and his deep understanding of our financial system will ensure strong continuity of leadership at the State Treasury as we continue working to promote fiscally responsible economic growth."

Dwyer has served at the State Treasury since 2010 and as Deputy Treasurer since 2011, where he has overseen compliance and strategic Treasury functions while assisting in management of Treasury staff. His responsibilities have included legislative analysis, fraud risk assessment and remediation, business continuity planning and support of financial operations. Dwyer also serves on numerous state commissions, including as chair of the Deferred Compensation Commission. Prior to working at the State Treasury, Dwyer served as Managing Director in the Tax Advisory Group for Net Lease Capital Advisors in Nashua.

Dwyer's nomination is subject to confirmation by the Executive Council. The Governor will officially nominate Dwyer at Wednesday's Governor and Council meeting.
