“This was a fun opportunity to bring some good news back to North Dakota, and of course, it's an honor to be recognized as a world record holder,” Godfread said. “This is also a great opportunity to highlight the work we do at the North Dakota Insurance Department and remind consumers that we are a consumer protection agency serving the people of North Dakota. There are no dumb questions when it comes to insurance, even if it’s about my height.”

Godfread has been an active voice in discussions about insurance regulations including the use of technology, air ambulance service and health care reinsurance. He currently chairs the Innovation and Technology Task Force for the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).
