NASHVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) October 24, 2019
Julie Mix McPeak, a shareholder in the Nashville office of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, has been appointed as one of the inaugural 21 members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System’s Insurance Policy Advisory Committee (IPAC). The inaugural IPAC members will serve staggered terms ranging from one to three years.
The IPAC provides information, advice, and recommendations to the Federal Reserve Board on domestic and international insurance issues, including negotiations at the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), according to a release from the Federal Reserve Board. The inaugural IPAC members have expertise in life insurance, property and casualty insurance, and reinsurance.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the Federal Reserve System as an advisor to its Board of Governors, particularly as one of the inaugural members of the Insurance Policy Advisory Committee,” said McPeak, who is a member of Greenberg Traurig’s Government Law & Policy Practice. “I look forward to drawing on my experience in the public and private sectors to work with the highly distinguished members of the committee and the board to inform decisions on a wide range of insurance-related issues.”
McPeak, a former commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance, focuses her practice on insurance law and insurance regulation issues. McPeak has more than 25 years of legal and administrative experience in state government and was the first woman to serve as chief insurance regulator in more than one state, having also served as the executive director of the Kentucky Office of Insurance.
“We congratulate Julie for her appointment to the Insurance Policy Advisory Committee and believe that it is a testament to her expertise and passion for the industry,” said Fred E. Karlinsky, co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Insurance Regulatory & Transactions Practice. “Her background and extensive knowledge of the insurance industry will undoubtedly make her an asset to the Federal Reserve Board now and into the future.”
