The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) has nominated former president and Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin M. McCarty to the Distinguished Fellows Program of the IAIS.

IAIS, or the International Association of Insurance Supervisors is a voluntary membership organization of supervisors and regulators from more than 200 jurisdictions and 140 countries.

“We nominated Kevin to show our gratitude for his decades of work on behalf of US consumers, regulators and companies during international negotiations and dialogues,” explained NAIC president and Missouri Insurance Director John M. Huff in the statement.

“Kevin has been a staunch advocate for effective regulation and a common sense approach to international standards during his service both to IAIS and NAIC,” Huff added.

The IAIS Distinguished Fellows program gives recognition to members that have contributed to the advancement of the organization’s initiatives.

McCarty’s involvement with the IAIS included nearly a decade of serving its executive committee, and acting as co-vice chair for four years. He has also been actively involved in the administrative and educational initiatives of the organization.

“I will say without hesitation…that my involvement with the IAIS has been a true career highlight. I have always enjoyed and appreciated my interaction with the talented and dedicated professionals who drive the work at IAIS,” McCarty’s acceptance statement read, delivered by NAIC president-elect and Wisconsin Insurance Commissioner Ted Nickel on the awardee’s behalf.
