Sagicor Financial announces retirement of CEO Dodridge Miller
Sagicor Financial Company Ltd (SFC) today announced that Dodridge Miller will retire as President and Chief Executive Officer effective March 2023.
The company says Miller will step down from his current executive duties after more than 30 years of service to Sagicor, including serving as President and Chief Executive Officer since 2002.
Miller will continue to serve on Sagicor’s Board of Directors.
The board has appointed Sagicor’s Group Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer Andre G. Mousseau to succeed Miller as President and Chief Executive Officer effective April 1.
Mousseau will also join the company’s Board of Directors on that date.
Mahmood Khimji, Chairman of Sagicor, said, “Sagicor has greatly benefitted from Dodridge’s visionary leadership to become the leading financial services provider in the Caribbean with an exciting growth platform in North America.”
Khimji further stated, “As Dodridge approached his planned retirement age, the Board of Directors undertook a thorough succession process including taking guidance from external advisors. The Board of Directors unanimously supported the succession of Andre to the role of President and CEO. Andre has worked hand in hand with Dodridge in developing and executing Sagicor’s strategy since he joined the Company in 2019. We believe Andre is the right individual to drive forward with the next stage of Sagicor’s growth.”
“I am honoured to be appointed to lead this great organisation. I look forward to continuing to work with Sagicor’s talented team as we execute on our growth initiatives, with a clear focus on delivering value to our customers, communities and shareholders,” Mousseau said.
Mousseau joined Sagicor as Group Chief Financial Officer in 2019, leading Sagicor’s finance function, capital raising efforts and overseeing its investment and acquisition strategy.
He was subsequently promoted to Group Chief Operating Officer, in addition to his oversight of Sagicor’s financial operations, in 2021.
In this expanded role, he has direct oversight of the group’s major operating subsidiaries.
He also serves as Chief Executive Officer of Sagicor’s US operating subsidiaries.
Prior to joining Sagicor, Mousseau had nearly 20 years of experience in financial services including over a decade as a senior private equity investor at EdgeStone Capital Partners, the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, and most recently as a Partner at Alignvest Private Capital.
Mousseau serves as a director on the boards of several of Sagicor’s subsidiaries and associated companies.
He also previously served as a director on the boards of Aurigen Reinsurance, Edgewood Health Network, Impark, and Premier Lotteries.
Sagicor says it is engaged in a process of naming a replacement for Mousseau as Group Chief Financial Officer.
