In 2003, Mr. Campbell was named vice president, and he was elected to the company’s board of directors in 2005.

GEICO’s CEO, Tony Nicely, told the press, “Mike has a keen analytical mind and knows our finances inside and out. In his new role as CFO, Mike will continue to build our financial strength as he has throughout his 27-year career. Mike has also become a valuable member of the senior management policy and strategy team.” .

Meanwhile, over at AON, a different type of corporate change is in the air. They announced on January 6th that the sale of all the outstanding and issued equity interests in their subsidiary, AIS Management, LLC, the parent company of Auto Insurance Specialists, LLC, had been completed. .

AON received $120 million in cash from Mercury General Corporation, the purchasing entity, on January 2nd. In addition there is the potential for them to receive another $34.7 million in additional consideration over the transition period, which lasts for two years from the closing date.
