Incoming New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer will nominate Eric Dinallo, a former lead investigator in his office of attorney general and currently general counsel of Willis Group Holdings, to be superintendent of insurance.
Dinallo worked with Spitzer from 1999 to 2003, during which time he headed an investigation into investment research firms for potential conflicts of interest. Dinallo is currently general counsel for global insurance broker Willis Group Holdings Ltd., and member of Willis Partners Group. In 2003, he joined Morgan Stanley’s regulatory affairs department, and this past March moved to Willis.
Dinallo is a graduate of Vassar College and New York University School of Law.
If confirmed, he will replace Howard Mills, who called Dinallo an “outstanding choice” and promised to cooperate in a smooth transition.
