Michael Bemi to retire from National Catholic RRG


Michael Bemi is set to retire from The National Catholic Risk Retention Group after 18 years in his role as president and CEO, effective 31 August.

Taking on the role from Bemi will be Dennis O’Hara, who will also serve as president of National Catholic’s two subsidiary companies, National Catholic Services and NCS Risk Services.

O’Hara will take over from 15 August and will report to the National Catholic board of directors and the NCS Risk Services board of governors.

Previously, O’Hara was area executive vice president of Arthur J Gallagher, based in the company’s San Francisco office.

Commenting on his appointment, O’Hara said: “I am truly honoured and humbled for the opportunity to lead National Catholic, a company with a longstanding history of enabling the mission of Catholic institutions in the US and ensuring safe environments for our children.”

“This is an exciting time for me, personally, and the National Catholic family, and I look forward to joining the team.”

Rev. Jay Haskin, chairman of the National Catholic board of directors, added: “We are excited about the appointment of Dennis O’Hara. He has had an accomplished insurance career and brings extensive experience working with both risk retention groups and the Catholic Church.”
