Oversight of the new state fund to subsidize medical malpractice rates will rank as a top priority for the new Maryland Insurance Commissioner.
Last week, Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich, Jr. named R. Steven Orr to serve as Maryland Insurance Commissioner.
Mr. Orr, 53, most recently served as chief information officer for the Universal Underwriters Group (a Zurich Financial Services company) since 2000. Previously, he was involved in the start-up and operation of businesses specializing information technology systems and project management.
