Mr. Olie has been President of the Boston-based insurer since 2009
Plymouth Rock Assurance’s President has announced that he will officially retire in November of 2018.
In a letter sent to the insurer’s independent agents on December 13th, Mr. Olie explained that when he originally joined Plymouth Rock back in 2009, he had envisioned working for another five years. He had also agreed to give one year’s notice before deciding to retire. “Now, eight and half years later, I have given them notice that it is my intention to retire in November 2018,” he wrote.
Noting that he has “absolutely loved his time with Plymouth Rock” Mr. Olie added that he has not discounted a possible part-time role with the Boston-based insurer after his “retirement” next November.
Mr. Olie officially joined Plymouth Rock in 2009, after spending 24 years with Progressive Insurance in Ohio.
The search for Mr. Olie’s successor will begin next year
According to Mr. Olie, the company’s plan to find a successor will include a search involving both internal and external candidates. Ultimately, the long lead time will give the company the necessary time in finding the right candidate to ensure a smooth and seamless transition.
