Governor recommends Mike Coan as administrator

Press Release

ATLANTA – Governor Sonny Perdue announced today that he is recommending State Rep. Mike Coan as Administrator of the Subsequent Injury Trust Fund (SITF). If confirmed by the SITF Board, Coan would replace former Administrator Richard McGee, who retired in March. The Georgia Subsequent Injury Trust Fund provides reimbursements and information to employers, insurers, and their agents, in those Workers' Compensation claims involving individuals with a pre-existing, permanent impairment.

"As chairman of the Industrial Relations Committee and Secretary of the Insurance Committee, Mike is deeply knowledgeable of SITF issues," said Governor Perdue. "He will ably guide the administration of the fund to properly process the claims that have been filed."

Rep. Coan represents the 101st District in the Georgia House of Representatives. Coan is the Chairman of the House Industrial Relations Committee. He was first elected to the General Assembly in 1996. He is also a member of the Appropriations, Banks & Banking, Rules, and Insurance Committees.

Coan graduated from the University of West Georgia with a degree in Business Management, and then returned to his home in Gwinnett County to begin his professional career in commercial construction. He and his wife, Hope, have three children, Autumn, Madison, and Grace. They attend Meadow Baptist Church in Lawrenceville
