Vermont Mutual’s Executive Vice President and COO, Mark McDonnell, stated “This is a bittersweet moment for Vermont Mutual as we welcome a new Loss Control Manager of Mary’s caliber, but at the same time have to say goodbye to Don, a key member of our team who has contributed immeasurably to our success. Don will be greatly missed by all of us who have had the privilege of working with him, both as a top-notch insurance professional and a friend.”
Mr. Rung remarked “Working for Vermont Mutual has been such an incredible experience for me and my time here has been among the best years of my professional career. I am truly grateful to the company for its leadership and its values.”
Regarding his successor, Mary Kaminsky, Rung continued “As a company, Vermont Mutual is very fortunate to have been able to attract and secure someone with Mary’s skill set and attitude. While she possesses technical loss control expertise that is admirable in its breadth and depth, she also brings communication competencies and interpersonal skills of a caliber that are rarely found in combination with her technical skills..”
