The Garden State now has a new permanent insurance regulator.
New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat, has administered the oath of office to Steven Goldman, the state’s new commissioner of the Department of Banking and Insurance.
The New Jersey Senate voted unanimously earlier this month to confirm Goldman’s appointment.
Goldman, who has been a lawyer at Sills Cummis Epstein Gross P.C., Newark, N.J., for 22 years, has specialized in representing real estate developers and in helping businesses raise money.
