NAVA Inc., which bills itself as the Association for Insured Retirement Solutions, says it has hired Catherine Weatherford to be president and chief executive officer starting Sept. 3.
Weatherford previously spent 12 years working as executive vice president and CEO of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, Kansas City, Mo.
Weatherford served a 4-year term as Oklahoma insurance commissioner starting in 1991.
She also has worked as a regional public affairs manager for Liberty Mutual Group, Boston. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Central Oklahoma.
Weatherford will succeed Mark Mackey, who announced his resignation from NAVA, Reston, Va., in January. Mackey will stay with NAVA during a short transition period, NAVA says.
