Mike Kreidler is Washington State’s eighth Insurance Commissioner. He was first elected in November 2000 and re-elected to a sixth term in November 2020. He has earned a reputation as a staunch advocate for consumer protection and a fair and balanced regulator of Washington’s diverse insurance markets.

Kreidler earlier served in the state legislature and the United States Congress. He was a member of the Northwest Power Planning Council and a regional director for the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

A doctor of optometry, Kreidler practiced at Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound for 20 years. He has a master’s degree in Public Health from UCLA and was a founding director of a community bank. He retired as a lieutenant colonel from the United States Army Reserve in 2003 with 20 years of service.

Of the current NAIC membership, Kreidler is the longest-serving insurance commissioner in the United States. He was honored in 2009 with the “Excellence in Consumer Advocacy Award” presented by consumer advisors to the NAIC, and with the “2010 Leadership Award” by the Statewide Poverty Action Network.
