Governor Quinn Announces Key Appointment
Andrew Boron to Lead Department of Insurance

CHICAGO - January 27, 2012. Governor Pat Quinn today announced a top appointment to his executive cabinet by naming Andrew Boron as director of the Illinois Department of Insurance (DOI). Today’s action is the latest in a series of appointments Governor Quinn will make as he continues to fulfill his commitment to creating jobs, economic development and increasing efficiency and accountability in all areas of state government.

 “Andrew Boron brings a wide range of experience to the Department of Insurance, and I am confident his strong leadership will enhance the essential regulatory and consumer protections DOI provides,” Governor Quinn said. “I want to thank the acting directors for their excellent work while we conducted this nationwide search.”

In addition to its regulatory obligations, DOI was instrumental in last year’s workers’ compensation overhaul, expected to save businesses $500 million a year, while protecting essential protections for injured workers. The agency is also instrumental in implementing the Affordable Care Act, and will help develop the state’s health insurance exchange.

Mr. Boron brings a career of insurance, governmental and private sector experience to DOI. He returns to state government after working as vice president and counsel at the ACE Group, where he served as primary liaison to the Departments of Insurance in nine states, including Illinois. He also served as Deputy Chief of Staff at the Illinois Toll Highway Authority between 2009 and 2010. Boron began his career at CNA Financial, serving as counsel and then director of state government relations.

Mr. Boron holds a bachelors degree from the University of Wisconsin and a juris doctorate from the Chicago-Kent College of Law. He was admitted to the Illinois bar in 1998. Boron is married and has two children.
