Thomas D. Rutherfoord Jr. announces retirement
Thomas D. Rutherfoord Jr., chairman of Richmond-based Rutherfoord, has announced his retirement from the risk management and insurance brokerage firm.
Rutherfoord joined the family business as the third generation to work in the insurance industry in 1971 after studying at the University of Virginia. He led his company's Alexandria office until being named president of the firm in 1986. By 2010, Rutherfoord was the 15th largest private insurance brokerage, according to national rankings. That year, the firm was acquired by Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC.
“In my 44 years with Rutherfoord, my greatest reward has come from contributing to the growth of our firm, our clients, and the wonderful associates who make our culture so unique,” Rutherfoord said in a statement. “… I look forward to the next chapter of my life, reflecting on a career fulfilled.”
