Indiana Insurance Commissioner Carol Cutter died September 6 in Indianapolis, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). Gov. Mitchell Daniels Jr. (R) appointed Cutter commissioner in June 2009, to succeed Jim Atterholt. Cutter was on medical leave since earlier this year, leaving Stephen Robertson as acting commissioner since June. "Carol brought a wealth of experience and expertise to her job and her dedication to the people in her state was beyond comparison," said West Virginia Insurance Commissioner and NAIC President Jane Cline. "We extend our thoughts and condolences to Carol's family and loved ones."

Cutter spent decades in the insurance industry working in property-casualty insurance agencies, life and health distribution organizations, and her own benefits enrollment firm. She was active in Indiana insurance groups. The Indiana State Association of Health Underwriters, Indianapolis, has named the Carol Cutter Legislative Excellence Award in Cutter's honor.

"Carol had been 'one of us' as an agent in the health side of the business for around 30 years, so she brought a special understanding and touch to the Commissioner's position in Indiana," said PIA of Indiana President Larry C. Mayfield. "She was also a personal friend to a lot us who knew and worked with her. We have lost a really caring advocate of our great business."
