Manitoba’s Minister of Crown Services, together with the board of directors of Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI), confirmed recently that the company’s CEO Dan Guimond will step away from his position.
In the announcements, the crown corporation public insurance provider said Guimond is retiring from his position, effective from March 16, 2018. MPI will now begin a search for his successor and transition responsibilities to a new CEO.
Guimond has been CEO of the company for three years, but has been working for the Manitoba insurance company for nearly three decades.
He joined the company in 1990 and was previously chief information office and vice-president of Strategy and Innovation. Guimond holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Manitoba. He also has an associate customer service designation from the Life Office Management Institute. He is a fellow of the Life Management Institute and a Queen’s University School of Business public executive program graduate.
“In his role as President and CEO of Manitoba Public Insurance, Mr. Guimond was the consummate professional, whose commitment and dedication to the Corporation and its customers was unwavering,” Minister of Crown Services Ron Schuler said.
“Throughout his career, Dan has been driven by a desire to provide Manitobans with superior and innovative insurance products and services while ensuring automobile insurance premiums remain stable, predictable, and among the lowest in all of Canada for comparable coverage and service,” said MPI chair of the board of directors Brent VanKoughnet.
“The Board is grateful for Mr. Guimond’s contributions to the corporation over his distinguished career and during his tenure as President and CEO during the last three years.”
