A holdover from the administration of former Gov. Jennifer Granholm is stepping down this week.
Ken Ross says he's resigning effective Friday as commissioner of the state Office of Finance and Insurance Regulation.
Democrat Granholm appointed Ross in 2008. He's continued as commissioner under Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who took office in January.
Before being appointed commissioner, Ross served as deputy commissioner and as the office's chief of staff.
Earlier, he was a vice president of the Michigan Credit Union League and an assistant state attorney general.
