Former Louisiana Department of Insurance deputy commissioner Jim Donelon has been sworn in as insurance commissioner. He succeeds J. Robert Wooley, who resigned to pursue new opportunities after serving as commissioner since 2002. Those new opportunities appeared as his successor was taking the helm. Wooley joined the Louisiana-based law firm of Adams and Reese LLP, the largest firm in the region that encompasses the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee.

In a statement, Wooley said he chose Donelon to be his chief deputy in 2001 because of his "impeccable reputation and extensive knowledge of the insurance industry." Adams and Reese Managing Partner Charles "Chuck" P. Adams, Jr., said of Wooley, "Robert has helped restore public confidence and trust during his time in public service. His record of accomplishments, knowledge of the insurance industry and state government will further enhance our firm's insurance business and governmental relations practice. We are pleased to welcome him to Adams and Reese."
