GEICO shuffles board of directors line-up

GEICO has made a number of notable changes to its board of directors line-up.

Both Pionne Corbin and Rick Hoagland have been elected to the board, a release said.

Corbin is a senior vice-president overseeing GEICO’s operations in Florida, the Southeast, the Midwest and Centralized Services. She is based in Lakeland, Florida, and began her career at GEICO in 1993 as a management intern.

Hoagland is a senior vice-president whose responsibilities include managing the company’s operations in New York, New Jersey and New England; he also oversees GEICO’s Indianapolis office. Based in Woodbury, New York, Hoagland originally joined GEICO in 1994 as a telephone claims representative.

In addition to adding two new members, GEICO’s board of directors has also elected three new officers: Yvonne Obeng-Curwood, as assistant VP of claims at the Houston office; Travis Cober, as assistant VP of claims at the Dallas office; and Rusty Ward, as assistant VP of underwriting and product management at GEICO headquarters in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Three officers within the board are also taking on new duties as part of this shake-up. Greg Jacobi is serving as assistant VP of claims at the San Diego office, after previously serving as assistant VP of underwriting; Tara Carthew is now assistant VP of liability and personal injury protection claims at the Lakeland office – previously an assistant VP of claims in Houston; and Paul Measley is assistant VP of liability claims at GEICO headquarters, following on from his former role as assistant VP of claims in Dallas.

“Please join me in congratulating these officers for their dedication and commitment and the outstanding results they’ve produced,” said GEICO president and CEO Bill Roberts. “They are clearly ready to take on these new challenges, and GEICO is truly fortunate to have such outstanding associates ready to fill these roles and keep us on our successful path.”
