The Griffith Foundation Announces Kevin H. Brown as Executive Director
Malvern, PA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
The Griffith Insurance Education Foundation is pleased to announce Kevin H. Brown, Esq., CAE, as its executive director. This new role will compliment Brown’s responsibilities as executive director of the CPCU Society. Both organizations have many complimentary objectives and activities, and this closer coordination of The Griffith Foundation and CPCU Society activities will facilitate the best structural solution to achieving both organizations’ strategic goals.
According to a McKinsey report, as many as 500,000 people will retire from the insurance industry within the next 10 years. Kevin Brown and the team at The Griffith Foundation will be developing a long-term solution for the risk management and insurance industry in order to address this coming human resource shortage. The Institutes’ Board of Trustees and The Griffith Foundation’s Leadership Council have identified the Next Generation initiative as a key effort to ensure the insurance industry remains a workforce leader in the future.
In addition, The Institutes’ Board of Trustees have identified the Public Policymaker Education initiative as a key effort to address industry concerns about regulation and public policymakers’ need for basic insurance knowledge. To that end, the Board has asked for a recommendation that reflects a significantly expanded approach in relation to The Griffith Foundation’s current level of Public Policymaker Education programs and activities. Brown is the leader of the team that will make recommendations to achieve this objective.
As newly appointed executive director, Kevin Brown will be a valuable asset in addressing the initiatives identified by both The Institutes’ Board of Trustees and The Griffith Foundation’s Leadership Council.
