Arizona Governor Doug Ducey appointed Evan Daniels Director of Arizona Department of Insurance and Financial Institutions effective July 20, 2020. The Department’s mission encompasses state regulatory oversight for both insurance and financial institutions, including banks and credit unions.

Before his appointment, Daniels served in the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, handling various matters related to consumer protection, innovation, technology, and government accountability. Of note, Daniels administered the Arizona Fintech Sandbox, a first-in-the-nation program for authorizing limited tests of innovative financial services products. Daniels co-authored the bill that created the Arizona sandbox and was responsible for the review, approval, and oversight of various tested products, including payments, consumer lending, digital assets, and machine learning. Daniels has spoken widely on regulatory innovation and represented the Arizona Attorney General’s Office as a member of the American Consumer Financial Innovation Network, a network of consumer financial regulatory agencies spearheaded by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the Global Financial Innovation Network, a similar network of global regulators spearheaded by the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority.

Daniels obtained a J.D. from University of Tennessee College of Law, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law, an M.A. in Diplomacy from Norwich University, and a B.A. in History from Arizona State University.
