WASHINGTON BUREAU — John Healy has resigned effective immediately as chief executive officer of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors.
Tom Currey, president of NAIFA, Falls Church, Va., announced Healy’s resignation today and said Susan Waters, NAIFA deputy CEO, has assumed the position of acting CEO.
Waters will serve as CEO until further notice, Currey says. No search is under way to find a successor at this time, he says.
According to sources, Healy left NAIFA headquarters in Merrifield, Va., last week.
Healy was in the middle of a 3-year contract that began when he was hired in September 2007.
“The last two years have seen a great deal of progress at NAIFA, and the association has much to be proud of,” Currey says in a statement about Healy’s departure.
“The industry’s presence on Capitol Hill and NAIFA’s position as the leading association for insurance professionals and financial advisors are stronger than ever,” Currey says.
