Meet Loyal NAIFA Member Scott Blake

By Ronan Friend on 3/28/22 5:42 AM

Scott Blake, MBA, knows the value of political advocacy. After a career in the political sphere, he now works to protect the interests of Main Street Americans as well as insurance and financial professionals.

From Politics to Financial Services

Blake transitioned from politics to financial services at the suggestion of his own financial advisor at Northwestern Mutual. Now, he's also a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual. Working primarily with upwardly mobile millennials, Blake says he likes helping driven, motivated people achieve their dreams and goals. He talks about one such instance when he helped a millennial client buy their first home. “It's about serving your client. I get to wish for the best for them and help them achieve their dreams.” That's his favorite part of being a financial advisor—he gets to be everyone’s cheerleader.

It has been busy season at the Ohio Statehouse these past few months – the first half in the House, followed by Senate consideration of the two-year operating budget proposal for FY ’22-23, HB 110. Wednesday afternoon, June 9th, the Ohio Senate completed work on its version of the budget bill with passage on a party-line vote, 25-8. Then the very next day, Thursday, June 10th, as expected, the House voted not to concur on Senate changes, thus sending the budget bill to Conference Committee to work out the differences between the two chambers along with the Governor’s introduced proposal as well. This process is scheduled to be finalized and agreed upon by both chambers and then signed into law by the Governor by June 30th, absent a few line-item vetoes. The Senate’s version added many new projects and funded several new programs. Highlights of the many new provisions include:

About Director Judi French

 

Judi French was appointed to serve as Director of the Ohio Department of Insurance on February 8, 2021 by Governor Mike DeWine. French serves as a member of Governor DeWine’s cabinet and is responsible for the overall leadership and direction of the department. 

Prior to becoming Director, French served as a justice of the Ohio Supreme Court and was the tenth woman to serve in that role in Ohio’s history. During her eight years on the court, Justice French participated in thousands of decisions and authored more than 100 opinions. In addition, she successfully pursued reforms to improve Ohio’s judiciary and justice system, and was appointed by the U.S. Chief Justice to serve on the Federal Appellate Rules Committee.

For nearly three decades, Director French has served the people of Ohio. Before becoming a justice, she served the state as an appellate judge, chief legal counsel to the governor, an assistant attorney general, and a state government lawyer. As an attorney representing the State of Ohio, she made two arguments before the United States Supreme Court. 

Prior to joining the public sector, French worked as an attorney with the Columbus law firm of Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur, specializing in environmental law. She also served as in-house counsel for a large manufacturing company.

Director French received three degrees from The Ohio State University: a B.A. in political science, an M.A. in history (with a concentration in military history and strategic studies), and a J.D., with honors. She is a member of the Moritz College of Law National Council, and in 2018 was awarded the college's Distinguished Jurist Award for her work on the bench.

French currently resides in Grandview Heights, near Columbus, with her husband. They have two children and two grandchildren.
