Former N.Y. Insurance Chief Mills Joins Deloitte & Touche

January 10, 2007

Deloitte & Touche USA LLP’s insurance industry group reported that Howard Mills, who served as superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department from 2004 to 2006, has joined the organization as chief advisor with its insurance industry group, working with both U.S. and global insurance clients.

At Deloitte, Mills will focus on strategic advisory work in areas such as growth, globalization, regulatory issues and compliance.

Mills was appointed superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department by Gov. George E. Pataki in December 2004. Mills served as commissioner of the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims, was a member of the Presidential Financial and Banking Information Infrastructure Committee and was also a member of the International Association of Insurance Supervisors.

A former state legislator, Mills was first elected to the New York State Assembly in 1998 and was twice re-elected. There, he served as the Deputy Minority Leader, sat on the Banking, Housing, Insurance and Ways and Means Committees, and was a member of the Armed Forces Legislative Caucus.

Additional recent senior-level hires include: Stephen Packard, a director with Deloitte Consulting LLP, from The Hartford, where he was vice president of national client practices; Bertha Fortney, a director with Deloitte Consulting LLP, from a global technology company, where she was the insurance and investment management practice head; Carl Groth, a director in Deloitte & Touche LLP, from the Willis Group Ltd, where he was responsible for their enterprise risk management and structured risk financing practices; and two additions to Deloitte Tax LLP, principal James Mannello and director Stephen Yarina, who have almost a half-century of industry experience between them.

The practice was further expanded with the purchase of certain assets of Technology Consultants, Inc. (TCi), a provider of benchmarking and advisory services to the insurance industry, in October 2005.

Deloitte’s insurance industry group clients range in size from global to middle market insurers and include life insurers, property and casualty insurers, reinsurers and brokers.
