Hickenlooper appoints two to Pinnacol Board

Gov. John Hickenlooper has signed Executive Orders to appoint John Plotkin and John Cevette to the Pinnacol Assurance Board of Directors.

“These individuals are each uniquely qualified to provide the Pinnacol Board with expertise in business management, employment law governance and worker’s compensation insurance,” Hickenlooper said. “Clearly, some events in the past related to Pinnacol were inappropriate. We expect the addition of Blair Richardson, John Plotkin and John Cevette will help restore trust and accountability to the board.”

John Plotkin is a member of the law firm Gregory & Plotkin LLC in Denver.

Plotkin has practiced law for more than 30 years and has experience in all phases of litigation in state and federal courts including numerous first chair trials and appeals. He earlier worked with several other law firms in Denver, Boston and Seattle.

Cevette is Chief of Staff to Colorado Senate President Brandon Shaffer. He directs policy, communications, outreach and administration.

Cevette earlier worked as an attorney in private practice, as the Chief Executive Officer of Colorado Corn, and served as Chief of Staff to former U.S. Sen. Floyd Haskell.

The new appointments must be confirmed by the Colorado Senate.
