The Arizona Corporation Commission appointed an interim executive director to lead its staff after the previous head resigned amid conflict-of-interest accusations, the agency announced Thursday.
Matt Neubert will take on the role after serving as director of the commission’s securities division for 15 years, overseeing 46 employees. Before that, he served as director of registration and compliance within the securities division, the agency said.
The Arizona Corporation Commission regulates electric, water and gas utility companies, securities regulation and incorporation of businesses, among other responsibilities.
