Sean Kevelighan is the president and chief executive officer of the Insurance Information Institute, an organization dedicated to improving the public’s understanding of insurance.
In his PrepTalk, Kevelighan shares the pivotal role that insurance plays in people’s lives and communities, both before and after a disaster. “What happens when the water drains, when the dust settles? You have to rebuild an economy,” Kevelighan says. “This is what insurance does. It gets people back in their jobs. It gets people back in their homes.” He describes the deeper values of insurance, including how insurance improves safety, builds resilience, and promotes innovation.
