International Center for Captive Insurance Education (ICCIE) Hires
Executive Director
In another step toward its official launch, the governing board of ICCIE
(pronounced "I See") hired Mitch Cantor of Shelburne, Vermont as its first
Executive Director.
Mitch was chosen by ICCIE's Board of Directors from an exceptionally
talented pool of applicants to lead the effort. His background includes
extensive business and marketing experience, management of nonprofit
organizations as well as demonstrated grant-writing and fundraising
expertise. A proven administrator and entrepreneur, Cantor received both
his MBA and Masters in Public Policy from the University of Michigan.
Beginning in September, ICCIE will offer its first courses. The
curriculum contains five core courses, a series of electives and
teleconferences. Courses will be taught in person and on line by a
staff of recognized industry experts. Students will be tested upon
completion of each course and must be successful in each exam in order to
receive their certification. Participants may also register for
individual modules rather than the certification track.

Dan Labrie, President and CEO of Housing Authority Insurance Group,
stated, "The education of participants in the captive insurance
industry is essential to our success and that of all captive insurance
companies. Knowledgeable professionals are key to a well managed, high
quality captive industry. We, at the Housing Authority Insurance Group,
are 100% supportive of this enterprise. The advent of the International
Center for Captive Insurance Education (ICCIE) is a real step forward for
captive insurance in the United States. Congratulations to the Vermont
Captive Insurance Association for taking the lead in this effort and to
Mitch Cantor for becoming ICCIE's first Executive Director."

A press conference and reception, featuring Governor James Douglas and
University of Vermont President, Dan Fogel, to celebrate ICCIE's
inauguration will be held on August 9 at 4:00 p.m. at the Waterman
Building on the campus of the University of Vermont in Burlington. (For
