San Francisco, CA – In June, WCIRB President and CEO Robert G. Mike announced his retirement effective December 1, 2011 after 42 years at the WCIRB. At that time, the Governing Committee formed an executive search committee to recruit Mr. Mike’s successor. As this search process has not yet concluded, the WCIRB Governing Committee has appointed Timothy Benjamin as Interim President, effective December 1, 2011, until such time as Mr. Mike’s permanent successor is named.
Mr. Benjamin started his career at the WCIRB in 1970 and has served as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for the last 22 years. Mr. Mike has been retained as an executive consultant to facilitate the transition.
