The National Association of Insurance Commissioners has appointed former Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson as CEO effective Monday.

Nelson, who served two terms as senator and was previously governor of Nebraska, joins NAIC as a leader of the group’s Washington D.C.-based operations.

“Senator Nelson’s impressive credentials and deep knowledge of state insurance regulation are simply unmatched,” says Jim Donelon, NAIC President and Louisiana Insurance Commissioner.

Nelson worked at the NAIC as an executive vice president and chief of staff prior to entering public service more than 20 years ago.

“After years in government, this is a homecoming for me,” says Nelson, adding that he looks forward to his new regulatory role.

His responsibilities include reaching out to federal and international government agencies and maintaining relationships with state government associations and other industry employees.
