Name: Pomeroy, Glenn
Current Position: Chief Executive Officer

North Dakota native and former ND attorney general candidate Glenn A. Pomeroy became CEO of the California Earthquake Authority on April 1, 2008.

Pomeroy earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of North Dakota in 1978 before getting a law degree there in 1981. At 22 years old, he became a member of his state’s House of Representatives, where he served for six years. Pomeroy, a Democrat, continued in a career of public service throughout the 1980s and 1990s as a county prosecutor, assistant attorney general and North Dakota securities commissioner, before being elected to two terms as state insurance commissioner from 1992-2000. In the last office listed, Pomeroy succeeded his brother, Earl, who after seven years as insurance commissioner launched a successful run for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Pomeroy was the Democratic candidate for North Dakota attorney general in 2000, losing to Republican Wayne Stenehjem. He finished his second term as state insurance commissioner before moving to the private sector in 2001, working for GE Insurance Solutions as the head of Government and Regulatory Affairs and associate general counsel until 2006. His company’s business was acquired by Swiss Re five years later, and he continued working for them as senior vice president of government relations in their Overland Park, Kansas, office until he was selected as CEO of the CEA.

Pomeroy was elected president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners in 1998. During that time, he led negotiations that created the International Commission for Holocaust Era Insurance Claims. He sits on the board of directors of the God’s Child Project, a global non-profit organization focused on “breaking the chains of poverty through education and formation.”

He lives in Carmichael, California, with his wife, Jean. They have three children: Kate, Anne and Charles.
