ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Gov. Mike Dunleavy has named a new acting commissioner for the Department of Revenue.
According to a press release, Brian Fechter will take over as acting commissioner for Deven Mitchell, who will now become the executive director of the Alaska Permanent Fund Corp.
“Mr. Fechter has been with the state since 2013, serving in various capacities at the Office of Management and Budget, Department of Health and Social Services, and most recently as the Deputy Commissioner for the Department of Revenue,” the release said. “He Holds a Masters Degree in Financial Services (MSFS) from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA. Brian Moved to the state in 2012 after having worked for the Walt Disney Company in Orlando Florida and PNC Bank in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.
