NEW YORK, May 7, 2021—The Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I) is conducting a national search for a Chief Insurance Officer (CIO) to succeed the retiring James Lynch, the Triple-I’s outgoing Chief Actuary.

“The Triple-I’s Chief Insurance Officer will be a leader who has a deep knowledge of the insurance industry, a proven ability to simplify complex topics, and a passion for communicating what they know to a wide array of audiences,” said Sean Kevelighan, CEO, Triple-I.

Besides overseeing the Triple-I’s Research and Education division, the CIO will work in tandem with other Triple-I subject matter experts to develop impactful industry insights and analyses, act as a media spokesperson on thought leadership matters, and deliver board-level presentations at industry events and to Triple-I member companies.

The Insurance Information Institute’s Research and Education team produces the Triple-I Daily, the Triple-I Blogwhite papers, and much of the editorial content for the Triple-I’s external website. The latter had 6.7 million page views last year—a 31 percent jump from 2019—in part because of the Triple-I’s reputation as a trusted source of unique and data-driven insurance industry insights. 

“The Triple-I’s Chief Insurance Officer will understand underwriting, pricing, and claims handling while also having strong writing, editing, and presentation skills. We know the industry is filled with talented professionals who meet these criteria,” Kevelighan added.

“My seven years at the Insurance Information Institute have been the most gratifying of my career,” Lynch stated. “Given the stature and credibility the Triple-I has built within the industry over time, I made national media appearances, testified before the U.S. House of Representatives, and had the opportunity to develop widely discussed research. Retiring from the Triple-I was a difficult decision.” 

The CIO will report into Triple-I’s CEO. A complete job description is available online and qualified applicants are invited to apply. Founded in 1960, the Triple-I’s members account for about 50 percent of the total premium written today in the U.S. auto, home, and business insurance market. The Insurance Information Institute is an affiliate of The Institutes.

The Triple-I has a full library of educational videos on its YouTube Channel. Information about Triple-I mobile apps can be found here.
