Hoomani recently served as the N.C. Department of Insurance’s general counsel, a position he held since January 2017. Previously, he worked in various legal positions during his 20-year career in N.C. state government, including as chief counsel for the N.C. Department of Commerce and general counsel for the N.C. Department of Labor.

Hoomani replaces previous COO Mark Tyler, who retired with over 30 years of dedicated state service. Tyler was heavily involved in leadership and operational roles with the Departments of Transportation and Public Safety before he joined DOI in December 2014.

“We’d like to thank Mark for his remarkable career of service to both the state and to DOI,” Commissioner Causey said. “We wish him the very best in the next chapter of his life.”

Tyler will receive the Order of the Long Leaf Pine for years of service.
