Insurance Commissioner-Elect John Garamendi announced that Rick
Baum, former Chief Deputy Insurance Commissioner during Garamendi’s first administration, will head the Garamendi transition team.
“I am very pleased that Rick Baum will be leading our transition efforts,” said Garamendi. “Rick was instrumental in helping me create the nation’s best consumer protection agency during my first term. His knowledge and experience will allow me to begin rebuilding the Department of Insurance to once again be the national leader.”
