The National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies says it has accepted the resignation of NAILBA Executive Vice President Joseph Normandy.

NAILBA has appointed an executive search committee, to be led by former NAILBA Chairman Edward Murray, to identify candidates to fill the vacancy, the group says.

Former NAILBA Executive Director Charles Rumbarger will run the group while the search committee is looking for Normandy’s successor.

“The association remains grateful to Mr. Normandy for his services to NAILBA and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” NAILBA says.

Normandy says he plans to stay within the insurance industry.

“NAILBA is a wonderful organization,” Normandy says.

The wholesale brokerage industry occupies an important and growing niche that provides a wonderful benefit for consumers, Normandy says.
