McCarty Extends Service as Search Continues
Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty announced earlier this year that he would be leaving his position in the first week of May. This triggered a search for a replacement that remains ongoing, with the next interviews expected to take place at an April 26 meeting of the Financial Services Commission.
With the effective date of his resignation soon approaching, Commissioner McCarty today informed the Financial Services Commission that he will extend his service until 45 days following the naming of his successor. McCarty cited has commitment to facilitating a smooth transition, especially with the 2016 hurricane season approaching, as the reason for delaying the effective date of his resignation.
