Prior to his current role, Finney served Michigan Governor Rick Snyder as Senior Adviser for Economic Growth and president and CEO of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). Under his leadership, MEDC moved to the forefront of U.S. economic development organizations with innovative new initiatives, including Pure Michigan Business Connect, Community Ventures, and the revitalized “Pure Michigan” tourism campaign and Michigan Export programs.

Finney holds a Master of Arts in Human Resources from Central Michigan University and a Bachelor of Business Administration from Saginaw Valley State University.
