"We had several great candidates and it was an extremely difficult selection," Sullivan said. "Neena has been an attorney with the Department of Business Regulation since 1997 and most recently served as Acting Deputy Director and Executive Counsel. Her legal experience along with her extensive experience with a regulatory agency will be a great asset to the Division," Sullivan said.
Savage will start with the Division of Taxation on February 9, 2015. She will succeed Peter J. McVay, who retired on October 31, 2014, capping a 36-year career at the agency.
