It is with heavy hearts that we learned of the passing of former LAMMICO President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert L. di Benedetto, M.D., on October 31, 2017. "We are extremely grateful for Dr. di Benedetto's commitment and service to LAMMICO. He will be fondly remembered and deeply missed," said LAMMICO President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas H. Grimstad, M.D.
Dr. di Benedetto was instrumental in the founding of LAMMICO in 1981 and was a leader in the company since inception. He served as LAMMICO President and CEO from 1994-1999. During his many years with LAMMICO, he also served on numerous committees and the Company's Board of Directors, and held the positions of Senior Vice President, Vice President, and Treasurer. Dr. di Benedetto's devotion to our company contributed to LAMMICO's unprecedented success, and we are privileged to sustain his commitment to make LAMMICO a stabilizing force for medical professional liability insurance.
