N.H. Commissioner Sevigny to Retire
New Hampshire Insurance Commissioner Roger Sevigny announced on March 9 that he will retire mid-June after leading the department for 16 years. Sevigny leads a staff of 82 employees and has been a leader in the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), serving as president and member of the Executive Committee; he also has been the president of the National Insurance Producers Registry (NIPR). “His experience, passion, and dedication are unmatched, and I cannot thank him enough for his years of service to the state,” said Gov. Chris Sununu.
Sevigny has presided over the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the expansion of Medicaid. “I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve our state and consumers and will certainly miss this work. The financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act made for challenging times, but was also rewarding,” he said.
