Alaska Division of Insurance Seeking New Director
(Juneau, AK) –Alaska Division of Insurance Director Linda Hall will retire this spring after leading the division for nine years. The search for a new director will begin immediately. “I will continue working through the legislative session, will assist with the transition, and look forward to retirement and time with my family,” said Director Hall.”
“Linda has guided the division with passion and integrity for many years,” said Commissioner Susan Bell. “We seek a candidate who can quickly step into this multi-faceted role and engage employees, the insurance industry, legislators, and the public.”
During Director Hall’s tenure, the division’s financial examination section received an outstanding reaccreditation review, affirming the state’s ability to analyze the financial solvency of insurers. The division currently licenses more than 39,000 producers, a significant increase from the 15,000 that were licensed when Director Hall joined the division in 2003.
The 51-person Division of Insurance is a member of the State of Alaska’s Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development. The department consists of six core divisions and six corporate agencies, with a mission to promote a healthy economy, strong communities, and protect consumers.
