Gene McKeever of Allen Insurance and Financial is a “subject matter expert” for the property casualty producer and consultant license exams given by the Maine Bureau of Insurance.

Each year, when it offers insurance exams to those seeking licensure in Maine, the state Bureau of Insurance calls upon experienced insurance executives from around the state to review exam questions for accuracy. This is McKeever’s 13th year serving the state in this way.

The bureau seeks experienced insurance professionals who have reputations of honesty and integrity plus a high degree of specific and current industry knowledge of their field. In June 2013, McKeever joined two of his colleagues from elsewhere in Maine to review questions with the test publishers.

McKeever is a commercial insurance specialist with a special emphasis on the marine industry. He runs Allen Insurance and Financial’s in-house license education program. Working with the state Bureau of Insurance is an extension of his belief in the importance of continuing education for all his colleagues, he said.
