January 20, 2011 by NU ONLINE NEWS SERVICE
Michael Consedine has taken over as the Pennsylvania insurance commissioner.
Consedine was appointed to the post by the state’s new governor, Tom Corbett, a Republican.
Consedine was a partner in the insurance practice group at Sal Ewing L.L.P., Philadelphia. He previously worked for the Pennsylvania Insurance Department.
Consedine succeeds Robert Pratter, who had been serving as acting commissioner since the former insurance commissioner, Joel Ario, left the department in August 2010 to go to work for an arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that is helping to manage federal health system change efforts.
