New ICBC chair Paul Taylor is Gordon Campbell's former chief of staff
The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia has a new chair.
Today (July 3), Premier Christy Clark's B.C. Liberal government announced it has appointed Paul Taylor to the post for a term of 12 to 18 months.
Taylor was the chief of staff to Gordon Campbell in the dying days of the former premier's tenure in Victoria.
His appointment to that job was announced on October 25, 2010. Campbell announced his resignation on November 3, 2010.
Taylor has also served as B.C. deputy minister of finance and secretary to the Treasury Board, and president and CEO of ICBC.
According to a news release from the B.C. Ministry of Finance, Taylor has requested that he not be paid for his work as ICBC chair "as part of his commitment to community volunteer service".
However, Taylor will be compensated for expenses.
ICBC had been without a chair since January, when Nancy McKinstry resigned from the position.
According to the ministry's release, a government review of the Crown corporation is expected to deliver a report "before the fall".
