ETF Secretary Robert Conlin

Department of Employee Trust Funds Secretary Bob Conlin recently announced that he will step down from his post in March of 2021. The ETF Board, which by law has the authority to appoint the secretary, has begun a nationwide search to replace Conlin, who is leaving the state to join family out East.

Conlin was appointed ETF Secretary in 2012. He served as Deputy Secretary and the Director of Legislation and Communications before that appointment.

“It’s been an incredible honor and privilege to have had the opportunity to work with the talented and caring team at ETF for the last 14 years. Their commitment to serving Wisconsin Retirement System participants is truly inspiring,” said Conlin.
