LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointments of Carl English, of Bingham Farms, and Scott Woosley, of Rochester, to the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority.

Prior to joining AEP, English worked at Consumers Energy for 35 years. He holds a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and a master's degree in business administration, both from Michigan State University. English replaces Heidi Mucherie.

 

Woosley brings more than 25 years of financial, investment and real estate development experience to the Authority. He is a principal and a founder of the BUILD Funds and LMFA LLC., a Troy-based financial investment firm. Woosley is a chartered financial analyst and member of the Association for Investment Management and Research, American Real Estate Society and the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans. He earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from George Washington University and an MBA from the University of Michigan. Woosley replaces Andrew Meisner.
