Wilton man nominated to head Conn. Insurance Department

Governor Ned Lamont has nominated Andrew Mais of Wilton to serve as commissioner of the Connecticut Insurance Department.  He has extensive insurance, regulatory, government, and community relations experience.  Lamont says he has a broad understanding of industry and regulatory issues that will help achieve the crucial balance to ensure that consumers are protected and have access to affordable and reliable insurance coverage, while at the same time supporting the continued growth of this sector of the state's economy. 

Mais currently specializes in insurance regulation at the Deloitte Center for Financial Services in Stamford, where he has worked since 2011. Prior to that, he served in the senior leadership team of the New York State Insurance Department. 

Mais is active with a number of community organizations in Connecticut, including as a member of the board of directors for the Maritime Aquarium, and as chair of the Council on Ethics for the Town of Wilton. Previously, he served on the Board of Finance for the Town of Wilton, the board of directors for the Wilton Chamber of Commerce, and as vice chair of the board of directors for the Wilton Education Foundation, among others. 

Mais will begin serving as the commissioner-designate on March 4. His nomination will be sent to the General Assembly for its advice and consent.
