Jeff Guilfoyle has been named chief deputy treasurer.
Guilfoyle, who will begin work on Jan. 22, previously worked at the Treasury Department from 1998 through 2009, serving in several positions, including director within the Economic and Revenue Forecasting Division and the Office of Revenue and Tax Analysis.
“Jeff’s expertise as an economist, K-12 policy and Michigan’s budget and tax system will be a great complement to Treasury’s administrative team,” said Treasurer Rachael Eubanks, who was one of the Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s first appointee announcements. “I am excited that Jeff has agreed to return to Treasury to work with us to serve Michigan’s local government units, schools and taxpayers.”
After leaving the department in 2009, Guilfoyle served as the president of Citizens Research Council of Michigan. Since 2014, he has served as vice president of Public Sector Consultants developing solutions to public policy issues.
Guilfoyle earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from University of Michigan and a master’s degree and a doctorate in economics from Michigan State University.
