Redwood Empire Municipal Insurance Fund (REMIF) names new General Manager

Sonoma, CA – Amy Northam, a 23-year legal and risk management professional, will be taking the helm at the Redwood Empire Municipal Insurance Fund (REMIF) on September 5, 2017 as their new General Manager. 

Most recently Ms. Northam was employed by the San Juan Unified School District in Carmichael, California as their Director of Risk Management, Employee Benefits, and Payroll.  Prior to that Ms. Northam worked in the legal field as a Supervising Paralegal.  Her significant experience in both worlds of risk management and law will serve her well as REMIF’s next General Manager, replacing Mark Ferguson who retired earlier this year.

“I look forward to leading this Joint Powers Authority in providing liability, property and worker’s compensation coverage to its’ 15 members and to working closely with the Executive Committee as well as the full Board of Directors in taking this organization to a new level” stated Ms. Northam. 

Ms. Northam will begin work on Tuesday, September 5th in REMIF’s Sonoma office.  Larry McLaughlin, REMIF’s President, said “Amy rose to the top from a total pool of 26 applicants, and was unanimously selected by the Board of Directors.  I personally look forward to working with such a talented professional.”

The Roseville, California based executive search firm of Peckham & McKenney, Inc. assisted REMIF in conducting this recruitment process, adding to their long list of successful placements.
