Insurance News


The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) has announced the appointment of Rich DiZinno as its new general counsel, effective Sept. 1.

DiZinno has served as NICB's vice president of strategy, policy, and government affairs since 2021.

“During his near twenty-year legal career, Rich has had a broad array of experience in the criminal, civil, policy, and political arenas and has advised principals at the highest level of government and the private sector," said David J. Glawe, president and CEO of NICB. "With Rich's legal acumen, diverse experience, and proven track record of significant accomplishments, I am confident we will continue to build on the successes achieved by the general counsel's office and strategy, policy, and government affairs."

Before joining NICB, DiZinno held the position of associate deputy attorney general at the US Department of Justice, where he advised the deputy attorney general and acting attorney general on critical national security matters. He also served as the chief counsel for national security and crime for the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Earlier in his career, DiZinno worked as an assistant US attorney in the US Attorney's Office in the District of Columbia, specializing in national security, fraud and public corruption, and homicide cases. He began his legal journey at Howrey LLP, a prominent litigation firm in Washington, D.C., where he gained experience in white-collar crime, antitrust, and complex litigation.

In 2022, President Joe Biden nominated DiZinno to serve as a member of the United States Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB), a position that received unanimous bipartisan support from the Senate.

DiZinno holds a bachelor's degree from the College of the Holy Cross and a law degree from the George Washington University School of Law.

The NICB recently issued a warning that motorcycle theft was on the rise. The organization also recently raised the alarm on post-disaster contractor fraud.
