Roanoke Insurance Group is pleased to announce that Karen Groff, Executive Vice President of Operations, will assume the role of President as of October 1. Current President, Bill Sterrett will remain as Chairman. Karen will be responsible for the ongoing leadership, management and directional planning of the organization; Bill will assume various strategic assignments and remain on Roanoke’s Board of Directors as Chairman.

Sterrett commented, “Karen is a strong leader, results-oriented and constantly seeks ways to improve our products, services and ways of working. I am both confident and excited about the future of the organization with Karen as my successor. I have worked closely with Karen for most of her career and she cares deeply about our employees, customers and partners. She is whole-heartedly dedicated to our industry.”

Karen has held various management positions in Roanoke’s regional sales and corporate offices, and is a champion of automation and creative client solutions throughout.
