South Carolina’s governor has elevated appearing insurance coverage division chief Michael Clever to the place of director.
Clever, who’s been with the Division of Insurance coverage since 2009, was named appearing director a yr in the past, after longtime director, Ray Farmer, retired.
“Michael has carried out a splendid job in his brief time as appearing director and I’ll be submitting his title to the Senate instantly for affirmation,” Gov. Henry McMaster mentioned at a information convention this week.
Like the previous Florida insurance coverage commissioner, David Altmaier, Clever has a bachelor’s diploma in arithmetic. Clever is also a member of the American Academy of Actuaries. On the DOI, he served as deputy director of actuarial and market companies earlier than being named appearing director of the division.
Final yr, Clever took steps to crack down on what McMaster referred to as “shady bail bond practices,” and has overseen efforts to discourage insurance coverage fraud by way of greater than 70 arrests.
“I couldn’t be extra excited,” Clever mentioned. “Our core mission is to guard customers.”
He pledged to keep up good communication with all stakeholders within the insurance coverage area.
