Charlie Clark tapped to lead Washington DFI

With Gloria Papiez scheduled to retire as Director of the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions on April 1, Governor Jay Inslee today announced the appointment of Charlie Clark as next leader of the agency. Mr. Clark currently serves as the agency’s Deputy Director and has been with the department for more than 14 years, with experience in enforcement and the Consumer Services division. Prior to joining the DFI, Clark provided legal guidance and representation to the agency in his role at the state Attorney General’s Office.

NWCUA representatives were engaged with the governor’s office throughout the search process, sharing credit union priorities and expectations for the next leader, and had the opportunity to meet with Clark, along with outgoing Director Papiez following her retirement announcement.

We will share more in the coming weeks throughout the transition, continue our engagement with Clark and his team, and facilitate opportunities for credit union leaders to speak with the new director.
