Madison – Governor Scott Walker today announced the appointment of Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) Secretary Lon Roberts to the Public Service Commission (PSC). Mr. Roberts will fill the seat being vacated by PSC Commissioner Phil Montgomery whose term ends on March 6, 2017.

“Lon has been an outstanding addition to our administration at the DFI, and I know he will continue to serve the state well at the PSC,” Governor Walker said. “I thank Phil Montgomery for his many years of dedicated service to our state at the PSC and as a member of the State Legislature.”

Lon Roberts was appointed DFI secretary in February 2016. He previously served as a partner and shareholder with the Ruder Ware law firm in Wausau, where he served as president and concentrated his practice in business and commercial law, primarily in the areas of corporate mergers and acquisitions, finance, lending, and private equity capital transactions. He also served as chair of the State of Wisconsin Investment Board and as a committee member of Governor Walker’s Judicial Selection Advisory Committee. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point and his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

“It’s been an honor to serve as secretary of DFI and lead a team of dedicated professionals,” Lon Roberts said. “I’d like to thank Governor Walker for the confidence he has shown in me. I look forward to my new assignment at PSC and working with the other commissioners and staff in this very important area of the state’s economy.”
