Aspen Insurance Holdings has announced the appointment of David Altmaier to its board as a non-executive director, subject to regulatory approval.

Altmaier served as the commissioner of insurance for the state of Florida from April 2016 to December 2022. He started at Florida’s Office of Insurance Regulation in 2008 and served in a number of roles before becoming commissioner, including director of property and casualty financial oversight and deputy commissioner of property and casualty insurance.

Among other market leadership roles, Altmaier served as a member of Florida’s Blockchain Task Force. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he was selected as a member of the state’s Re-Open Florida Task Force Industry Working Group on Agriculture, Finance, Government, Healthcare, Management and Professional Services.

Altmaier has also held multiple leadership roles with The National Association of Insurance Commissioners, most recently as president.

“I am delighted to welcome David to the board of Aspen,” said Mark Cloutier, Aspen group CEO and chairman. “His extensive regulatory experience and standing in the industry will make him an excellent addition to our board of directors. I look forward to working with him and our fellow directors as we continue to strengthen Aspen’s position within the market.”

Altmaier is the latest addition to Aspen. Last month, the company appointed Yasmin Saleh as head of corporate communications.
