McNeil stepping down from Gore Mutual
Come July, there will be a new president and CEO steering the Gore Mutual ship as it enters its 175th anniversary year.

Just hours ago, Gore Mutual’s Kevin McNeil announced his intention to retire effective June 30 after 15 years as President & Chief Executive Officer of the Cambridge-based company.

“Kevin's outstanding leadership has resulted in unprecedented growth and success at Gore Mutual,” said Charles Cipolla, chair of Gore Mutual’s board of directors. “Revenues have quadrupled and our balance sheet has never been stronger. Kevin's passion for excellence in all areas of our company and his respect for all our stakeholders have created a compassionate and customer focused culture.”

In line with Gore Mutual's succession plan, Heidi Sevcik, currently Vice President of Claims, will become president and CEO on July 1, after serving as Chief Operating Officer and reporting to McNeil, effective February 17.

“As we look toward the future, the board is confident that Heidi's leadership skills, breadth of experience and business insight will ensure the continued success of our company,” said Cipolla.

“I am delighted that the Board has chosen Heidi as my successor,” said McNeil. “For several years, the Board has been committed to delivering a seamless and well planned CEO transition.” (continued.)
