(Chicago, IL) — March 17, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn today tapped Illinois Housing Development Authority Executive Director Gloria Materre to serve as the Executive Director of the Illinois Liquor Control Commission.
Materre, who will implement decisions on licensing, disciplinary measures and policy determinations of the seven-member Commission, replaces Lainie Krozel. Krozel returns to her prior position as Chief of Staff for the Illinois Department of Revenue.
“An experienced attorney, Gloria brings the vital skills needed to take on this new role and continue serving the State of Illinois. Her strong working relationship with the public and business community will be a true asset at the ILCC,” said Quinn.
Materre has served as the Executive Director of IHDA since September 2009. Prior to that post, Materre served as deputy chief of staff under Quinn, focusing housing initiatives, legislative matters, economic and business development and community stabilization.
Materre holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a law degree from the University of Illinois College of Law.
