Governor Cuomo announced Maria T. Vullo, a former top litigator in the NYS Attorney General’s office, as his nominee for Superintendent of the Department of Financial Services. If approved by the state Senate, Ms. Vullo would be the first official Superintendent since Benjamin Lawsky resigned the post in June 2015.

According to Cuomo, “Maria has shown an immovable commitment to upholding the law and protecting consumers, and I am confident that she would be a strong and tireless advocate for the people of New York.” She has, he said, “the right combination of public and private sector experience needed to lead the Department of Financial Services.”
