BALTIMORE – Maryland Insurance Commissioner Kathleen A. Birrane has named Kory Boone as Chief of Staff for the Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA). Boone succeeds Gregory Derwart, who was promoted to Deputy Insurance Commissioner in March 2021.
“I am delighted to welcome Kory to the Maryland Insurance Administration team,” said Commissioner Kathleen A. Birrane. “He brings strong organizational and management skills and has a solid reputation as a nimble, practical problem-solver. He will complement and strengthen our already accomplished senior staff.”
Boone has extensive experience in project management and systems modernization. He comes to the MIA from the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT), where he served as Special Assistant to the Director. In that role, Boone oversaw critical upgrades to SDAT processes, including automation and digitization projects. Notably, he took the lead on technology innovations in response to the COVID-19 state of emergency. Since January, he has served on the State’s COVID-19 Task Force.
“I am thrilled to join the Maryland Insurance Administration,” Boone said. “The MIA has an excellent reputation for customer service and efficiency, and I look forward to working with Commissioner Birrane and the entire MIA team.”
