Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame to induct three new members in ceremony at Olivet College
Apr 16, 2010

The Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame will honor three outstanding leaders, legends and innovators in the insurance industry at the 17th annual induction ceremony of the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010 on the Olivet College campus.

Mark Odland, of Stevensville, will be inducted as a 2010 member of the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame. Odland retired from State Farm Insurance Companies in 2009 as vice president of operations, overseeing claim operations for the Great Lakes zone, which includes Michigan, Indiana and Illinois.

Merton J. Segal, of Bloomfield Hills, will also be inducted. Segal founded Meadowbrook Insurance Group and helped many businesses and groups by developing insurance alternatives when insurance was unaffordable or unavailable.

Also being inducted is James E. Wilds, of Frankenmuth. Wilds is senior vice president, overseeing claims operations, for Frankenmuth Insurance. During his career, Wilds created innovative solutions to improve claims service and pioneered the use of voluntary alternative dispute resolution.

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

If you are interested in nominating someone into the Michigan Insurance Hall of Fame or need additional information, please visit http://web.olivetcollege.edu/mihof or contact Michael R. Hubbel, MIHOF administrator and director of the Risk Management and Insurance Center at Olivet College, at (269) 749-7626.
