KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Feb. 12, 2019) — The National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) announced its new board members and director for 2019 during its winter Board of Directors meeting in January.

Kentucky Insurance Department Commissioner Nancy Atkins has joined NIPR’s board.

“When it comes to supporting regulatory compliance through NIPR’s technology, Commissioner Atkins’ experience will provide immeasurable service to the NIPR Board of Directors,” said Karen Stakem Hornig, NIPR CEO.

Atkins was appointed Kentucky Insurance Commissioner in May 2017 and is a 33-year veteran of the insurance industry, working as both a licensed agent and employee benefit manager.

Nick Gerhart, former Iowa Insurance Commissioner and current Chief Administrative Officer of Farm Bureau Financial Services, will serve as the newly merged trade association American Property and Casualty Insurance Association (APCI) representative on the Board.

The Board elected David Leifer, American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) Vice President and Associate General Counsel, as its Vice President for the year.

“The leadership and expertise of Nick Gerhart and David Leifer will be a valuable asset and critical component to our success for the coming year as we look for ways to continually improve our service to regulators and producers,” said Stakem Hornig.

Their terms are effective immediately.
