Gil Gould has announced that he is retiring from his position as Senior Vice President of the Underwriting Division, effective December 31. Gil came to AEGIS in 1998 after a career in risk management at Edison International in Southern California, which included his service as a member of the AEGIS RMAC. During his career at AEGIS, Gil contributed in countless ways to the success of the mutual’s activities, including AEGIS London, our terrorism cover, the domestic property program, our regional member and broker meetings, the Member Contact Pool, the Policyholders’ Conference, AEGIS News and others. We thank him for his service to AEGIS and our members, and wish him all the best in retirement.
We are pleased to announce that George Keefe will assume most of Gil's responsibilities for member relations and he has been promoted to the position of Senior Vice President, Member Relations. George has been a tireless advocate for our members since joining AEGIS in 1992, and he’s been instrumental in the development of new coverages and services, as well as our successful expansion into Canada. Prior to joining AEGIS, George served as the risk manager for New Jersey Natural Gas. Please join us in congratulating George on his new assignment.
Finally – and we hoped this day would never come – Sandy Johnson has announced her retirement as Vice President in the Underwriting Division, effective September 30. Sandy is our last working link with the earliest days of the mutual. Sandy has served AEGIS well for more than 34 years, earning the respect and friendship of members and brokers alike. Sandy, Brian Madden and Bill Cullen have been actively coaching the next generation of "Sandy Johnsons" to provide the same level of service and dedication that Sandy has provided since the beginning. We will never be able to thank Sandy enough for her contributions to AEGIS and our members, and we wish her all the best in retirement.
