Minneapolis, MN – Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty today announced that an employee of the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (Office) earned the distinction of being the first regulator in the country to attain the Senior Professional in Insurance Regulation (SPIR) designation.
 
Commissioner McCarty presented the designation to Steven Szypula, the Office's chief analyst of property and casualty oversight, at the Summer Meeting of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).
 
"Florida is proud that one of our own has the honor of being the first regulator in the country to have earned the SPIR designation," McCarty said.

The program is designed to provide state insurance regulators at all staff levels an opportunity for professional growth through completion of specific educational requirements which demonstrate expertise in different aspects of insurance regulation.
