The State Office of Risk Management has welcomed Thomas Meehan as Liaison Officer in SORM’s Communications & Development department. Mr. Meehan is working directly with Senior Liaison Officer, Mr. Paul Harris, to manage all legislative, media, client, and constituent relations. As Mr. Harris and Mr. Meehan prepare for the 86th legislative session, which convenes in January 2019, they are also closely monitoring activity with SORM’s current Sunset review and SFP processes.
“I am very honored to have Mr. Meehan join us at the State Office of Risk Management,” said Stephen Vollbrecht, Executive Director. “Thomas has a wealth of experience, intelligence, ethical foundation, and a temperament that represents the best of what we aspire to be as an organization of service. I am fully confident that his counsel and efforts will benefit the agency, our charges, and the public, in the broadest fashion possible.”
“I feel privileged to join a state agency with such a great culture,” said Mr. Meehan. “I am grateful for the faith and trust that leadership at SORM has instilled on me, and feel honored to represent the State Office of Risk Management.”
Thomas is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in Government, and dual minors in Business Foundations and European Studies. Prior to joining SORM, Thomas served as a Government Relations Specialist for the Texas Department of Insurance and has prior state service in multiple roles for both the Texas House and Senate.
