Jon Florsheim has been with HomeServe for over four years and under his leadership we have consolidated our UK operations into one business while continuing to grow customers, policies and profit, and improve retention.
(PRWEB) July 23, 2011
HomeServe plc announces today that Jon Florsheim has advised that he has decided to step down as a Director at the Company's Annual General Meeting in July, and will leave the Company in August.
Mr Florsheim will be replaced as Chief Executive of the UK home emergency insurance business by Jonathan King, a Director of HomeServe plc and currently Chief Executive Officer of HomeServe USA. Mr King was appointed to the Board in July 2010 and has been Chief Executive of HomeServe USA since 2005. Prior to that, he spent four years as Managing Director of HomeServe's UK business. He previously worked in retail marketing with the Boots Company as a Group Brand Manager.
Mr King will, in turn, be replaced as Chief Executive Officer of HomeServe USA by Tom Rusin, currently a Non Executive Director of The Ambassadors Group and formerly President and Chief Executive Officer of Affinion Group's North American Division. Mr Rusin will join HomeServe USA immediately and will also become a member of HomeServe's Executive Committee.
Commenting on the changes HomeServe's Chief Executive, Richard Harpin, said:-
"Jon Florsheim has been with HomeServe for over four years and under his leadership we have consolidated our UK operations into one business while continuing to grow customers, policies and profit, and improve retention. Jon leaves the business well positioned for the future with a strong management team and we are grateful to him for all he has done here. I wish him every success in his next opportunity.
I am delighted that Jonathan King, who has led our business in the United States for over six years and has grown the business into a market leading position, has agreed to return to the UK, and that we have hired Tom Rusin, who has a wealth of experience in direct marketing, to replace him in the United States.
Jonathan and Tom both have excellent track records and I am confident they will deliver continued strong growth in two of our key businesses."
