BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinity Property and Casualty Corporation (NASDAQ: IPCC) announced today that Roger Smith, the company's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, plans to retire at the end of August of this year. Mr. Smith has served as Infinity's Chief Financial Officer since the company went public in 2003. A formal search for his replacement is underway.
Jim Gober, Infinity's CEO and Chairman, stated, "Intelligent, dedicated, tireless, are just a few of Roger's attributes from which we have benefited so greatly during his long service to this organization. I have no doubt that Roger's many talents, personal qualities and character will continue to serve him well as he pursues his dream of sharing his knowledge and experience in an academic setting. We wish him the best."
Mr. Smith added, "I have learned enough as I approach the 'tender' age of 55 not to presume that there will be unlimited time or an open window of opportunity to pursue other paths toward personal growth and fulfillment. In my case it is a return to the college classroom, this time as a teacher rather than a student. The 12 plus years here have been the pinnacle of my professional life, and I am grateful to Jim, our board and my colleagues for allowing me to have at least a hand in building this company into what it is today. I share their pride in Infinity's accomplishments and will surely miss being part of Infinity's future successes, of which I am certain there will be many."
