During the AGM, Bertil Olsson, President and Chief Executive Officer announced that he will be retiring in March of 2025 and noted “The Company is conducting an extensive recruitment process to source my successor. Whilst my retirement is still a year away, I would like to express what an honor and privilege it has been to lead this amazing organization over the past 8.5 years. It has truly been the highlight of my career. I am looking forward to the continued work over the coming year with our very talented team and Board of Directors and to transition the business to the next leader upon completion of the succession recruitment process.”

Following Mr. Olsson’s announcement, John Weisner, Chair of the Everen Board expressed the Board’s appreciation for Mr. Olsson’s sound stewardship and highlighted several key accomplishments during his tenure as CEO.

Subsequent to the AGM, the newly elected Board convened and appointed John Weisner as Chair of the Board and Brian Mullen as Deputy Chair for 2024.

For the fiscal year 2023, Everen reported a net income of $679.5 million, driven by a rebound in the investment portfolio, positive underwriting income and effective cost management.
