The Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance (TDCI) just announced Michael Schulz has been appointed the new Business Development Director - Insurance Division after Josh Clark's decision to pursue the role as Area Vice President at Arthur J Gallagher.
Schulz has served as Executive Director for six regulatory programs within TDCI’s Division of Regulatory Boards since joining the Department in 2020. As TDCI’s Director of Business Development for the Insurance Division, Schulz will focus on expanding the use of captive insurance companies as a risk management solution for businesses in order to attract new captives to Tennessee.
“The TCIA welcomes Michael to the captive space in Tennessee,." said TCIA President Kevin Doherty. "He brings excellent and relevant experience to his new position, and I believe he will help Tennessee continue to be a top domicile for captive insurance. We will certainly miss Josh at the Department, but I am glad that he will remain in the captive industry. Josh has been an invaluable partner for growing our domicile, but I believe we will have a seamless transition with Michael at the helm. We very much look forward to working with Michael to continue to grow the captive insurance industry in Tennessee.”
Josh Clark said "The last two years have been incredible and I want to thank Commissioner Lawrence and the rest of the department for their support during my tenure with the state. I am very proud of all the accomplishments we collectively achieved and couldn't be more excited to continue that momentum back in the private sector at Arthur J. Gallagher."
