Badger Mutual Insurance Company has named Dan Nigro as its president.

Nigro assumes his role Jan. 1, 2019. He will be the 10th president in the Milwaukee-based insurance company’s 131-year history.

He succeeds David Kane, who has been president of Badger Mutual Insurance since 2013. Kane plans to retire in 2019 and continue serving on board.

“Dan does amazing things for Badger Mutual Insurance that resonate throughout all aspects of the company and its operations,” Kane said. “He has recognized the importance of balancing what is in the best interest of the company and our agency force. He will continue in all respects to do great things for Badger.”

Nigro began his career with Badger Mutual Insurance in 2005 as a software engineer, later expanding his role with marketing responsibilities.

Nigro became executive vice president in January, after serving as the senior vice president and the vice president of information technology and marketing. Nigro was appointed corporate secretary in 2014. He was elected to the board of directors in April.

“I am honored to have been chosen to lead this company comprised of extremely talented employees and dedicated independent agents,” Nigro said. “Together, we will continue to build upon our strong foundation of superior insurance protection by leveraging cutting-edge technology, compassionate service, and multi-stakeholder initiatives. With our greatest asset, our heart, as the driving force, the future is looking very bright for the Badger Mutual family.”
