Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, D, has named Ralph Tyler to be insurance commissioner.

Tyler, O’Malley’s chief legal counsel, is on track to succeed Peggy Watson, an interim commissioner. O’Malley must win approval for Tyler from the Maryland Senate.

Tyler has served in the past as deputy attorney general of Maryland and as city solicitor for Baltimore. He also has worked as a lawyer in private practice. He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois, a law degree from Case Western Reserve University, and a master of laws degree from Harvard University.

“The Maryland Insurance Administration’s primary purpose is to protect Maryland consumers,” Tyler says in a statement. “I look forward to working under Governor O’Malley to protect the working families of our state.”
