Roger Phelps passed away a few days ago. It is slightly overused, I suppose, but Roger was one of the founding fathers of Vermont’s captive insurance industry – including VCIA. We have lost a number of early captive innovators in the past few years.
Roger was a very creative person – you had to be to get both the industry and VCIA off the ground from the beginning. He even created VCIA’s first logo! Roger got ALCOA’s captive (Three Rivers Insurance Company) started in 1983 – license #8. Three Rivers is one of the few parent companies with a captive employee intentionally located in Vermont.
Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and the many people he touched in the captive community. He influenced many.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
