Insurance attorney takes state’s top ethics job
Stacey Kalberman, an attorney specializing in insurance regulatory issues, will become Georgia’s top ethics enforcer next month.
Kalberman, 45, currently of counsel at Morris, Manning & Martin, was one of three finalists interviewed last month for the post. She will replace Rick Thompson, who stepped down as executive secretary of the State Ethics Commission in October.
The commission voted during a March 3 conference call to offer the job to Kalberman. In a news release today, the commission said Kalberman had accepted the job and would start April 12.
Kalberman, a 1990 Emory Law School grad, worked for former Insurance Commissioner Tim Ryles from 1992 through 1994. Since then, she has worked in several capacities in the private sector. At Morris, Manning & Martin, she concentrated her practice in regulatory matters for alternative risk programs, including insurance captives, risk retention and purchasing groups.
