OFFICE OF GOVERNOR MATT MEAD
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead has tapped Tom Hirsig as the next director of the Wyoming Insurance Department. That agency is responsible for regulating the business of insurance in the state of Wyoming.
“Tom has practical experience in the business world and we are fortunate he is willing to leave the private sector to serve Wyoming,” Governor Mead said.
Hirsig has worked in insurance, real estate and management in Wyoming for over 20 years. He has served on the Laramie County School District #2 Board, including as Chairman of the Board. Hirsig also competed in rodeo, qualifying for the National Finals Rodeo in 1987.
“This is a great honor. It is an opportunity to do something for the State of Wyoming, to give back to the greatest state in the country,” Hirsig said. “My background in the private sector and my experience running a business taught me the importance of living within your means and keeping a balanced budget. I will bring that same philosophy to running the Insurance Department.”
Governor Mead also thanked Ken Vines for his leadership and his service to Wyoming. “Ken put a lot of effort into running the Insurance Department, and I appreciate that he will stay a while to help Tom transition into the agency,” Governor Mead said.
The Wyoming Senate did vote to confirm Hirsig as the next director of the Wyoming Insurance Department.
