Maryland Insurance Administration Staff Hold Leadership Positions with National Association of Insurance Commissioners

Senior Maryland Insurance Regulatory Leaders Take On Key Roles Nationally

BALTIMORE – The Maryland Insurance Administration (“MIA”) announced today that several key senior staff members will be serving in national leadership positions with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (“NAIC”) for 2019.

The following MIA senior staff will serve as follows:

  • MIA Chief Information Officer Paula Keen will represent Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. as the Chair on the Information Systems (EX1) Task Force. As Chief Information Officer, Paula leads information technology operations and is responsible for infrastructure services, application development, database management and technical support services for the agency.
  • MIA Associate Commissioner for Life and Health Bob Morrow will represent Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. as Vice Chair of the Pharmacy Benefit Manager Regulatory Issues (B) Subgroup. In his role as Associate Commissioner, Bob has oversight of the Life and Health Forms Review Unit, the Medical Director/Private Review Agent Oversight Unit, the Life & Health Complaint Unit, and the Appeals & Grievance Unit.
  • Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. will serve as Vice Chair of the Surplus Lines (C) Task Force.
“We are excited to have our senior staff lead several key committees at the NAIC,” Redmer said. “While insurance is regulated at the state level, it’s important to coordinate our regulatory oversight, establish standards, and share best practices across state lines.”
 
The NAIC is the U.S. standard-setting and regulatory support organization created and governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. Through the NAIC, state insurance regulators establish standards and best practices, conduct peer review, and coordinate their regulatory oversight. NAIC staff supports these efforts and represents the collective views of state regulators domestically and internationally. NAIC members, together with the central resources of the NAIC, form the national system of state-based insurance regulation in the U.S.
