Nevada Insurance Commissioner Scott J. Kipper last week announced his resignation, effective July 2, 2015.

Amy L. Parks has been appointed acting insurance commissioner by Bruce H. Breslow, director of the state’s department of business and industry.

Kipper served as Nevada’s commissioner from December 2008 to June 2010 and was reappointed to the post in October 2011. He served on the Executive Committee at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) and on the Federal Advisory Committee on Insurance at the U.S. Department of Treasury.

Before serving as Nevada’s commissioner, Kipper served as the deputy commissioner in charge of the Office of Health Insurance for the Louisiana Department of Insurance and as CEO of the State of Louisiana Office of Group Benefits. He also served as the State of Oregon Insurance Administrator.

“It has been an honor to have served the state of Nevada as commissioner. I am proud of the division’s accomplishments,” said Kipper. “I am certain that the Division of Insurance will continue to serve the consumers, protecting the rights of all Nevadans as we regulate the $12 billion insurance industry.”

Acting Commissioner Parks has 11 years of high-level experience at the Nevada Division of Insurance, and this is her second time serving as acting commissioner. She has served as chief insurance counsel and hearing officer for the division since the spring of 2009 and as insurance counsel and hearing officer since August 2004.
