Gov. Rick Snyder Monday appointed long-time municipal finance veteran John Axe to the Michigan Judges Retirement System Board.
The five-member board oversees the Judges Retirement System Defined Benefit plan.
Axe is president of Axe & Ecklund PC and a permanent adjunct faculty member at the Wayne State University Law School. He has worked at various law firms and was the sole proprietor of John R. Axe and Associates.
Axe also co-authored Michigan Municipal Law, according to the governor's office.
"John brings years of experience to this post, and I am confident he will assist the board in effectively overseeing retirement matters for Michigan's judges," Snyder said in a statement.
