Former Idaho Gov. Dirk Kempthorne will step down as CEO of the $43 million-revenue American Council of Life Insurers by early 2019, he said in a statement released Wednesday. He has led the group since 2010.

“This is the appropriate time for ACLI to transition to a new president and CEO,” he said. “I will work closely with the board of directors on the search for, and transition to, my successor while maintaining continuity and momentum in our state, federal and international efforts this year. I look forward to leading ACLI through a positive and productive 2018.”

Kempthorne was Secretary of the Interior in the administration of President George W. Bush from 2006-09, and governor of Idaho from 1999-2006. He represented Idaho in the U.S. Senate from 1993-1999.
