Kan. insurance chief fills consumer division spots

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger has promoted three employees of her office's Consumer Assistance Division to new supervisory jobs.

Praeger announced the changes Wednesday.

She says Steve O'Neil will be the division's new director, replacing Jennifer Sourk, who left the Insurance Department recently for a job in private business. O'Neil had been the division's health supervisor.

Praeger named Elizabeth Fike to replace O'Neil has health supervisor. Fike had been working as an attorney and consumer health representative.

Meanwhile, Praeger said LeAnn Crow will become the division's new property and casualty supervisor after working as a market conduct examiner. Crow will replace Daryl Richardson, who retired last month.

Praeger, a Republican, is in her third term as insurance commissioner and isn't expected to seek re-election next year.
