Spitzer to add to cabinet

Newsday ERROL A. COCKFIELD JR

ALBANY - Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer is set to name Eric Dinallo, the architect behind most of Spitzer's Wall Street investigations, to be superintendent of the state's Insurance Department, according to a source intimately familiar with Spitzer's deliberations.As superintendent, Dinallo, now general counsel to global insurance broker Willis Holdings Group, would be in charge of regulating one of the state's most influential industries - one that's been a repeated target of Spitzer's lawsuits as attorney general.Dinallo, of Manhattan, is one of several appointments Spitzer is expected to roll out in the coming days as he builds a cabinet ahead of his inauguration Jan. 1. He would replace Howard Mills, whom Gov. George Pataki tapped to be superintendent in 2004 after Mills failed to unseat U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer.From 1999 to 2003, Dinallo served as the head of Spitzer's Investment Protection Bureau. He then left to become the regulatory chief at Morgan Stanley, after the firm had agreed to pay a $125 million fine to settle a Spitzer suit that the company published misleading stock information to bolster its investment banking profits.

As the Spitzer appointments come in..I will try and post them here............andy
