Russell Shaner Named New CEO
The Board of Directors of Resource Partners is pleased to announce the appointment of Russell (Russ) Shaner as the next President and CEO of the organization. Russ will succeed Keith Stuckey who will retire on June 25, 2016.
Russ comes to us with extensive experience in the insurance industry, most recently as the President of the Insurance Society of Philadelphia, a nonprofit member organization providing networking and development support to insurance professionals. Prior to his service at the Insurance Society, Russ worked for a number of years for AAA Mid-Atlantic Insurance Group and CSAA Insurance (formerly AAA NCNU Insurance Exchange) in various roles including Vice President of Claims, Vice President of Claims and Partner Relations, Senior Vice President of Underwriting, Claims, and Policy Services, and Regional Claims Executive.
Resource Partners is a unique organization and identifying the right leader involved an extensive search. Finding someone with a mix of insurance and member organization experience, who will also fit with the culture of our customers was a challenge. We are confident that Russ will be more than up to the task and look forward to his start with us on June 20, 2016. A priority of the next months will be meeting and building relationships with our customers and strategic partners.
The board is grateful to Keith for his exemplary leadership and his willingness to continue working for Resource Partners as we searched for the right successor. Please join me in wishing him a happy and healthy retirement and welcoming Russ to Resource Partners.
