Mechlin D. Moore, former president and chief executive officer of the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.), passed away on Tuesday, June 13, following a lengthy battle with cancer.

Moore, of Rye, New York, led the I.I.I. from 1979 until his retirement in June 1991.

Moore began his career as a reporter for TheWashington Post and worked for an organization that would become the National Association of Realtors. For many years he served as the National Risk Retention Association’s director of communications, and was senior vice president of United Airlines, responsible for all public and government relations, and industry and consumer affairs.

“Mechlin was a forward thinker,” said Sean Kevelighan, chief executive officer of the I.I.I. “Decades ago, he was already talking about the incredible pace of technological change and the proliferation of technology choices facing insurance agents.”
