KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) is delighted to welcome Gary Anderson to its Board of Directors. Mr. Anderson’s extensive experience and leadership in the insurance regulatory field make him an invaluable addition to the NIPR Board.

Anderson was named Chief Executive Officer of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) in March 2024 and assumed his duties on May 1, 2024.  As CEO, he oversees all aspects of the NAIC’s operations, represents the views of the NAIC membership, and advocates for the state-based insurance regulatory system with stakeholders.

Gary Anderson’s NIPR appointment comes after the NAIC Commissioners’ Mid-Year Roundtable meeting where the commissioners voted to appoint Mr. Anderson to the NIPR Board of Directors effective July 1, 2024.

Anderson remarked, “As I join the NIPR Board of Directors, I am eager to support the NIPR’s mission to provide cost-effective, streamlined, and uniform licensing data and compliance services for insurance professionals.”

Before joining the NAIC, Anderson served as the Massachusetts Insurance Commissioner. He was appointed Commissioner of the Massachusetts Division of Insurance by the governor of Massachusetts in October 2017 and served until April 2024.

Karen Stakem Hornig, CEO of NIPR, expressed her enthusiasm for Anderson’s appointment: “Gary’s expertise and vision are perfectly aligned with NIPR’s dedication to serving insurance professionals. His leadership will undoubtedly advance our mission and drive innovation within the industry.”

The NIPR also extends heartfelt thanks to Andy Beal, for his steadfast leadership and service. As he steps down, his legacy continues to inspire our commitment to excellence.
