Florida’s Szypula Becomes First to Receive Regulation Designation

June 15, 2009

An employee of the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation earned the distinction of being the first regulator in the country to attain the Senior Professional in Insurance Regulation (SPIR) designation.

Commissioner Kevin McCarty presented the designation to Steven Szypula, the OIR’s chief analyst of property and casualty oversight, at the summer meeting of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).

The SPIR designation is one of three levels of designations available from the NAIC’s Professional Designation Program. 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.
