MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ceridian Corporation, a leading provider of outsourced payroll, health care benefits administration, funds management and wellness program administration, announced today that former Minnesota Department of Commerce executive Manny Munson-Regala has joined the Ceridian Exchange Services team.

Mr. Munson-Regala served in a number of executive roles at the Minnesota Department of Commerce, including Acting Commissioner of the Department during the transition from Governor Pawlenty to Governor Dayton. While at Commerce, Mr. Munson-Regala served as co-chair of the Minnesota Inter-Agency Exchange subgroup working on implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). This subgroup was charged with reviewing the PPACA’s provisions on exchanges and identifying what actions were needed to ensure Minnesota complied with the federal law, while at the same time building upon existing Minnesota reforms.
