David McNutt, senior vice president of claims for Cincinnati-based American Modern Insurance Group, has been named chairman of the Claims Committee of the National Association of Independent Insurers (NAII).
“David’s many years of experience as a claims professional make him the ideal choice to guide the claims committee,” said John Eager, senior director of claims for the NAII. “We look forward to working with him in addressing the many challenges facing claims professionals in today’s marketplace.”
McNutt will lead the claims committee in working with member companies to develop public policy, providing insight to NAII staff for conducting research in support of that policy, and preparing information to support NAII’s lobbying positions.
He also sits on the Claims-Program Subcommittee, and is helping to prepare NAII’s Joint Executive Claims Workshop to be held in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 25-26. Themes will include federal vs. state insurance regulation, class action reform, grassroots lobbying, claim-related regulatory issues, and trade association priorities.
