Kelley, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Rate level increases continue to accelerate in the commercial lines of business, and we continue to implement moderate rate increases in the personal lines of business. The rate level increases we are implementing now are long-overdue, and are becoming increasingly necessary in this low interest rate environment,” continued Kelley.
