BALTIMORE – Commissioner Kathleen A. Birrane has promoted Jamie Sexton to serve as director of legislative and regulatory policy for the Maryland Insurance Administration.
In her expanded role, Sexton will represent the commissioner and the Maryland Insurance Administration in matters before the Maryland General Assembly, the governor’s legislative office, and Maryland’s Congressional delegation. She will also coordinate and assist in formulating the Maryland Insurance Administration’s positions on pending legislation, and in developing the agency’s departmental legislative agenda.
Sexton will also maintain her national role, managing relations and coordinating policy with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners – 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.
“Jamie has extensive knowledge of the legislative and regulatory processes,” said Commissioner Birrane. “This promotion is a recognition of her diligence and the respect she has earned throughout our state.”
Sexton joined the Maryland Insurance Administration in September 2022 as director of health insurance regulatory affairs and national partnerships. Previously, she was director of state policy at the Immune Deficiency Foundation, legislative director for Maryland Senator Mary Washington and an associate in the Office of the Attorney General Consumer Protection Division.
Sexton holds a bachelor’s degree from Clemson University and a J.D. from Charleston School of Law.
