Retiring From Harford Mutual Insurance After 25 Years
Harford Mutual Insurance is honored to announce the formal retirement of Executive Vice President Robert Ohler after 25 years of service to the company effective December 31, 2015.
“When Bob turns his office light out for the last time on his 9,237th day with Harford Mutual, he can look back with all of us on not only his well-deserved retirement, but also his leadership and steady application of talent, wisdom, vision, and collegiality the company and so many others have benefited from during his tenure. His success within Claims, Underwriting/Commercial Business Services, and as a member of Senior Management has been exemplary, and we will miss him greatly,” said Harford Mutual President and CEO, Steve Linkous.
Ohler began his career at Harford Mutual in 1990 with the Claims department before transferring to Underwriting in 2003. He was promoted to Executive Vice President in 2015. Under his leadership, Harford Mutual refined its underwriting practices helping to achieve a direct written premium growth of $50 million in the last four years and a 170 percent, $122 million increase in policyholders’ surplus since 2004. Ohler holds a bachelor’s in marketing from the University of Baltimore.
A respected member of the community, Ohler will be continuing his service as a Board Member of The Helping Up Mission in Baltimore City. Ohler was instrumental in pioneering Harford Mutual’s Annual Bocce Tournament for their benefit. The highly anticipated event held in early fall has become a fixture in the company’s numerous internal charitable giving activities.
