West Virginia Auditor to Head White Collar Crime Center


The auditor of West Virginia will be the next president and CEO of the National White Collar Crime Center in Richmond, Virginia.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that Glen Gainer will oversee day-to-day operations at the center starting May 15.

The organization provides training to law enforcement officers across the nation. Gainer will spend much of his time at the organization’s Fairmont satellite.

He had served as the group’s board chairman for 18 years. The organization announced Tuesday in a news release that Christopher Cotta has been selected to replace Gainer as the new chairman of the board.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is expected to name a new state auditor by May 14.
