LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today appointed Timothy J. McCarthy to the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority Board of Commissioners.

The board governs the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Park Authority through the approval of expenditures, acquiring lands, planning of new parks and facilities, and other regional recreational matters.

"Tim has the knowledge and skill set to be an incredible asset to the board as it continues to improve the metroparks system," Snyder said.

McCarthy, of Grosse Pointe, is a member of the executive committee of the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and chair of the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau Board of Directors. He retired from Soave Enterprises after serving as vice president of finance as well as corporate treasurer. He now serves as non-executive chairman of the Soave Enterprises Transportation Group. Before that, McCarthy worked for 12 years in the auditing department of Price Waterhouse & Co. (now PWC). He earned a certificate of accountancy and financial management from Walsh College in Troy, MI.

McCarthy will serve a four-year term expiring May 2, 2015, and replaces Warren Evans. The appointment is not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
