Background

Aaron Lunt writes on Insurance Industry Regulation and Compliance for IRMI.com.

Mr. Lunt leads the newly created regulatory affairs team in the legal, compliance, and government affairs group. As the head of the department, he oversees the state government relations and regulatory law groups responsible for advocating for Assurant's public policy positions with state legislators and regulators by leveraging a variety of external (trade associations and law firms) and internal resources. In addition, the team identifies, monitors, and analyzes new legislation and regulation that affects Assurant's business and works closely with members of compliance and the business to implement these changes. Globally, the team works with international contributors to monitor new laws and regulations in the different countries in which Assurant does business to reduce noncompliance and identify new business opportunities. Beyond these assigned responsibilities, the team also supports business leaders in creating business-friendly, compliant solutions to support profitable growth. These efforts help create market opportunities while limiting financial harm and risk to the organization's reputation.

Prior to working for Assurant, Mr. Lunt spent over 5 years with Zurich, North America, based in Schaumburg, Illinois, most recently serving as their vice president of laws, regulations, and public policy support. In that capacity, he led a department responsible for a spectrum of insurance regulatory issues relating to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, large commercial deregulation, regulatory requirements review, and new law and regulation analysis and implementation support.

Mr. Lunt is an Illinois-licensed attorney and also holds the Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Associate in Reinsurance (ARe) designations. He is a member of the CPCU Society Leadership Council (2016–2018) and recently concluded a 3-year term as the chairman of the Regulatory & Legislative Interest Group. Also, he previously served as a director for the Chicago-Northwest Suburban Chapter of the CPCU Society and is a current member of the Chicago Chapter. Mr. Lunt has also been recently elected to serve a 3-year term on the board for the Global Warranty and Service Contract Association (GWSCA).

In addition to Mr. Lunt's passion for politics, reading, and music, his most cherished moments are spending time with his wife and three young boys.
