Minnesotans lead financial roundtable
ST. PAUL -- One of Washington's influential lobbying organizations soon will have a stronger Minnesota leaning with the promotion of a Detroit Lakes native.
Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty, president and chief executive officer of the Financial Services Roundtable, on Jan. 1 will make Eric Hoplin, a former Minnesota Republican Party official, the group's executive director. Hoplin has been the organization's vice president of communications and organizational strategy.
