Mike started as a field representative at the WCIRB in 1969 and progressed to vice president and house counsel, ultimately becoming president in 1989. During his 42 years with the bureau, the California workers' comp industry went through "dramatic change," according to a statement on the WCIRB's website.
The inauguration of California first-elected insurance commissioner in 1991, repeal of the minimum rate law in 1995, the workers' comp crisis and resulting insurer insolvencies at the turn of the century, and unprecedented legislative and regulatory system reforms between 2002 and 2005 occurred during Mike's tenure.
