Governor Names Andy Tobin to Dual Role as Interim Superintendent of the Department of Financial Institutions
PHOENIX – Governor Doug Ducey today announced the appointment of Andy Tobin as interim superintendent of the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions, replacing outgoing Superintendent Lauren Kingry, who recently resigned.
Mr. Tobin was appointed in October as director of the Arizona Department of Insurance, a role he will continue to serve while filling his new post.
Previously, Mr. Tobin served for several years in the Arizona State House of Representatives, including as Speaker of the House. He also brings extensive private sector experience in the areas of banking, insurance and aerospace.
“I want to thank Superintendent Kingry for his service and dedication to the state,” said Governor Ducey. “Andy Tobin is a proven and effective leader who has helped make Arizona government more efficient and accountable to taxpayers. I know he’ll bring that same approach to the Department of Financial Institutions, and I thank him for his willingness to take on this new role in service to the state and citizens of Arizona.”
Mr. Tobin joined Governor Ducey’s administration in January, initially as director of the Arizona Department of Weights and Measures. In that role, he was instrumental in consolidating the agency into other areas of government, cutting down on bureaucracy and waste and increasing the efficiency and quality of service to Arizona taxpayers.
