New Jersey’s NJM Insurance Group President and CEO to Retire This Year
NJM Insurance Group, a West Trenton, N.J.-headquartered property and casualty insurer, has announced that president and CEO Bernie Flynn will retire on April 27, 2018, after a career at the company that spanned 25 years, including the past 10 as its leader.
“Bernie guided NJM through some challenging times during his ten-year tenure as CEO – including the Great Recession and Super Storm Sandy – ensuring every day that we honor our commitment to be there when our policyholders need us,” said Brian Neuwirth, chairman of NJM’s board of directors.
Flynn has served as NJM’s president and CEO since April 2008. He joined NJM in 1993 as a staff attorney, rising to vice president, senior vice president and general counsel before being named CEO.
He currently serves as co-chair of Greater Trenton, a non-profit whose mission is to advance economic development and revitalization projects in New Jersey’s capital city, and vice-chair of NJTV, New Jersey’s public television network. He is also the former chairman and a founding board member of Choose New Jersey, an independent, privately funded and managed non-profit that markets the Garden State as a premier location for businesses looking to expand or relocate.
Mitch Livingston, NJM’s chief operating officer and general counsel, has been selected by the company’s board of directors to succeed Flynn, becoming the ninth President in NJM’s 104-year history.
Livingston joined NJM in 2006, and he has served on the board of directors since 2013. Prior to joining NJM, Livingston was a partner in a Trenton, N.J.-based law firm, specializing in insurance regulatory law and appellate practice, after beginning his career as a deputy attorney general representing the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance.
