Peter Shumlin, the Vermont governor elect, has picked Steve Kimbell to be the state’s next commissioner of Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration.
At a press conference announcing a series of appointments to Shumlin’s administration, Kimbell said the regulated community can expect a “consistent, predictable and collaborative approach to regulation” from him.
Kimbell, a lobbyist, retired from Kimbell Shermam Ellis L.L.P., Montpelier, Vt., in May after 34 years. Kimbell founded the firm in 1987.
The firm describes itself as a multi-state government, public affairs and communications firm that also provides legislative and regulatory strategy in government affairs.
