From the CEO
This is my last message “From the CEO” to all of you. For more than nine #years, I’ve had the honor of being SAIF Corporation’s sixth president and CEO. As I write this, the Board of Directors, with input from the governor, is #in the process of choosing my successor. I expect they’ll make a decision soon.
I’ve loved the past nine years, especially getting to know many of you. I’ve tried to call on policyholders in every corner of Oregon, and, as these pictures show, I’ve largely met that goal. Although I squeezed as many of you as possible on this page with me, this is only a small percentage of the businesses I’ve been privileged to visit. Getting to see what you do, and how you do it safely, has been a highlight of my SAIF career. Thank you.
I’m proud of the fact that—since 2007—we’ve been able to return $690 million in dividends to our policyholders while still ensuring that we had more than adequate funds set aside to take care of injured workers and their families. Many of you took the time to let us know the dividends mattered to you and your businesses.
Mostly, I’m proud of the 800+ SAIF employees who’ve worked with me for the past nine years. They taught me the business, put up with my idiosyncrasies (yes, I have a few), and each and every day (and night) did whatever it took to get the job done. I’ve never met a more mission-driven, talented, and compassionate group of people.
Thanks for your business and your friendship. I won’t be SAIF’s CEO in the years to come, but you’ll still see me in your businesses. I can’t wait to get back to Pendleton, Paisley, Prospect, and Prairie City (just to name a few).
