SPEAKER: STATE TREASURER, DALE FOLWELL

Mr. Folwell was elected North Carolina’s 28th State Treasurer in November of 2016. The North Carolina State Treasurer is responsible for the state’s pension and healthcare plans valued at more than $100 billion.

Treasurer Folwell has promised the people of North Carolina that he is going show them where their money is, who is managing it and how good they are at their jobs.

He served four terms in the North Carolina House of Representatives, including his role of Speaker Pro Tempore in his final term. While in the House, Mr. Folwell authored 29 major pieces of legislation that saved money, minds and lives for North Carolinians.

As the state’s Assistant Secretary of Commerce, he inherited the most “broke and broken” unemployment system in the United States when he joined the office in 2013. Under Mr. Folwell’s leadership and with help from the General Assembly, North Carolina employers and hard-working employees, the state was able to pay-off $2.7 billion in unemployment debt and build a $1 billion surplus in 30 months.

Treasurer Folwell began his career as a blue collar worker making a living with his hands, feet and back. Working his way through school, he received his B.S. and Masters in Accounting from UNC-Greensboro. He is a former vice-president and registered investment advisor for Alex Brown.
