Former Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Michael F. Consedine has been named Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), effective in early 2017.

Consedine will lead the NAIC’s Washington, D.C. office with primary responsibility over state and federal government affairs and international activities. He will work closely with NAIC members, representing their interests as an advocate and spokesperson for the association.

Outgoing NAIC President John Huff said the NAIC needed someone with Consedine’s experience with international, insurance industry and state regulatory affairs. “Mike brings valuable experience and energy to this role during a time of transition with a new administration and Congress,” said Huff. “He is highly respected by members of the NAIC and served this body with distinction when he was Pennsylvania’s Insurance Commissioner.”

Consedine will fill the post left open since former U.S Sen. Ben Nelson left on Jan. 31, 2016. Nelson reflected on his insurance career in an interview in PIA Connection [“Mr. State Insurance Regulation”] conducted by PIA National Senior Vice President Patricia A. Borowski. Nelson will continue as a consultant to the NAIC through January 2017.
