New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine administered the oath of office on March 24 to the new Commissioner of the Department of Banking and Insurance Steven M. Goldman.
Corzine named Goldman to the cabinet post on January 31. Earlier this month, the Senate Judiciary Committee and the full Senate unanimously approved his appointment.
Goldman was a senior member and 22-year veteran of Sills Cummis Epstein & Gross PC. During his time at the firm his focus revolved around corporate law, and specifically looked at mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, joint ventures, and leveraged buy-outs. Goldman earned a Masters of Law in taxation from New York University School of Law, a Jurist Doctorate from the George Washington University School of Law and an undergraduate degree in political science from Boston University.
“I very much appreciate the confidence Governor Corzine has expressed in me by nominating me for this position and allowing me to be a part of his team,” said Goldman. “As a proud native of New Jersey, this appointment is a particular privilege for me.”
