Olivet College hosts Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame inductions
Aug 31, 2004

OLIVET, Mich. – The 11th annual induction ceremony of the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame will honor Morrall M. Claramunt, CPCU, of Frankenmuth and Ralph J. Ladd of Grosse Pointe Shores, Wednesday, Sept. 15 on the campus of Olivet College.


As executive vice president of Frankenmuth Insurance Company, Morrall has been an active advocate of the insurance industry. He taught insurance classes, recruited and mentored young people, and represented the industry in many arenas. Claramunt served as treasurer and chairman of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, president of the Michigan Insurance Federation and the Insurance Information Association of Michigan and was active in the formation of the Insurance Institute of Michigan.


Ladd, who is being inducted posthumously, retired from Amerisure Mutual Insurance Company (formerly known as Michigan Mutual Insurance Company) as chairman and chief executive officer after more than 43 years with the company. He dedicated time to numerous organizations that helped the insurance industry better serve the public, including the Alliance of American Insurers, the Property and Casualty Insurance Council, the Michigan Association of Insurance Companies, the Mutual Reinsurance Bureau, and the Improved Risk Mutuals.


The Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame was established at Olivet College in 1994 as a way to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the Michigan insurance and risk management industry. An election panel, representing a cross-section of the insurance and risk management business, identifies leaders or innovators who have made significant contributions in five areas: education, exemplary service, legislative activity, product/service development and recruiting new participants.


If you are interested in nominating someone into the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame or need additional information, please contact Michael R. Hubbel, administrator at Olivet College at (269) 749-7626.
