Martin J. Welch has been named chief executive officer and senior underwriting executive at Hawaii Employers’ Mutual Insurance Company, or HEMIC.
Welch will succeed Bob Dove, who plans to retire. Dove has been seen in HEMIC television commercials in which executives try to get a frog to say the company name.
The appointment came at Tuesday’s board of directors meeting, at which Welch also was named president of HEMIC Insurance Managers Inc., a HEMIC subsidiary.
He was most recently president and chief operating officer of Employers Holdings Inc., a publicly traded Workers Compensation specialty carrier based in Reno, Nevada.
