On Tuesday, Governor Mike Parson announced Vivek Malek as his selection for Missouri’s next State Treasurer. Malek, of Wildwood, is a practicing attorney who owns and operates the Law Offices of Vivek Malek. He was appointed to the Southeast Missouri State University Board of Governors by Governor Parson in 2020. Malek will resign his role before he’s sworn in as State Treasurer.
“Over the years, I have come to know Vivek as an accomplished attorney, successful business owner, proud husband and father, and someone who truly embodies the American Dream,” Governor Parson said in a news release. When Vivek came to this country with just $300 in his pocket, he didn’t look for handouts or make excuses. Instead, he respected every opportunity this state and nation provided. He worked hard, completed his education, and now owns and operates a successful legal practice that helps others achieve their own American Dream, and we are proud to appoint him as the next State Treasurer.”
