Earlier this month, Governor Abbott appointed Jeff Nelson to the long-vacant post of Commissioner of Workers’ Compensation.  Nelson previously served as Director of External Relations for the Division of Workers’ Compensation (a post he held since October of 2016).  A graduate of the University of Texas, Commissioner Nelson has extensive experience with the Texas legislature including posts with Senator Tommy Williams, Governor Rick Perry and Congressman Kevin Brady.  We look forward to working with Commissioner Nelson in the coming years.
