Gooch Takes Oath of Office as Utah Insurance Commissioner

June 1, 2010

Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert has appointed Neal T. Gooch as Commissioner of the Utah Insurance Department.

Gooch was appointed acting Insurance Commissioner in January, and previously served as deputy insurance commissioner since 1997. The Governor’s appointment was confirmed by the Utah Senate.

“Neal’s experience and demonstrated working knowledge of the Utah Insurance Department makes him the logical choice for this position,” Gov. Herbert said. “I thank him for his willingness to step forward, and appreciate his continued service to the State of Utah.”

Former Insurance Commissioner Kent Michie retired in January 2010.

Gooch has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Arizona State University, and a juris doctorate from the Potomac School of Law in Washington D.C.
