Shelter’s Clapp remains IIHS Board chair for 2021

March 24, 2021

Dan Clapp, executive vice president of Shelter Insurance, will remain at the helm of the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s Board of Directors for 2021 as planned.

Clapp, executive vice president at Shelter, took over as chair in July, following six months as chair-elect.

“Even as the world’s focus shifted to a different type of threat over the past year, the loss of life due to motor vehicle crashes has not abated,” Clapp says. “Our industry’s consistent support of the Institute’s vital work is more important than ever.”

Stan McNaughton, president and chief executive officer of PEMCO Mutual Insurance Company, remains chair-elect, and Scott Ziegler, business leader at Progressive Insurance, is staying on as vice chair.

“The steady guidance of Dan and the rest of the board has allowed us to remain productive despite the challenges brought by the pandemic,” says David Harkey, president of IIHS and HLDI.
