NDIRF’s Cahill to Retire Jan. 14, 2022


Bismarck, ND – The North Dakota Insurance Reserve Fund (NDIRF) today announces Director of Claims Jeff Cahill will retire on Jan. 14, 2022, after serving NDIRF members and employees for the past 35 years.

Cahill has been an integral leader within the NDIRF, overseeing the claims department’s employees, budget, and the implementation and maintenance of policies and procedures. His vast claims management experience and knowledge have also been leveraged by departments across the organization to develop and communicate risk management education to NDIRF members. 

NDIRF employees regard Cahill as an expert in claims management, given the way he can navigate and resolve difficult claims. 

“Jeff is among the very best claims management professionals in the insurance industry,” said CEO Brennan Quintus. “Jeff has a unique skillset that includes an ability to build a relationship with almost anyone while also handling the technical side of claims management at an extremely high level.” 

“We’ll very much miss having his perspective and leadership around the NDIRF, and we wish him nothing but the best in retirement.” 

Cahill was first introduced to the concept of the NDIRF in 1985, during which time he owned an adjustment firm that provided services to the Fund’s original administrator Missouri River Underwriters. He later consulted on the business development and operational strategies for the NDIRF which was formed in 1986. He continued to provide adjustment services to the NDIRF until 1989 when he became the Fund’s first-ever Director of Claims. 

Cahill’s last day in the office is Friday, Oct. 29, but he will remain in a consulting capacity until Jan. 14, 2022.
