Roger Sevigny has been confirmed for a new five-year term as New Hampshire’s insurance commissioner by the state Executive Council. Sevigny was reappointed to the post for a third term by Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan on May 15. Sevigny became commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Insurance after being appointed to the post by Republican Gov. Craig Benson in 2003 and was reappointed by his Democratic successor, Gov. John Lynch, in 2008. Sevigny has been very active within the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). He is a past president and currently chairs the NAIC Producer Licensing Task Force.

“PIA is pleased that Commissioner Sevigny has received this well-deserved reappointment,” said PIA National Assistant Vice President of Regulatory Affairs David M. Eppstein, Esq. “His leadership in New Hampshire and at the NAIC is a great asset to our industry, and we look forward to continuing to work with him on strengthening our state-based system of insurance regulation and opposing federal encroachment.”

“In addition, as President of the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) and Chair of the NAIC Producer Licensing Task Force, Commissioner Sevigny plays an integral role in advancing our licensing uniformity and reciprocity goals,” Eppstein said. “We have seen tremendous progress over the past few years under his leadership, so it’s good to know we are going to keep this momentum going with Commissioner Sevigny.”
