Dave Walsh has a career that has been, literally, all over the map: from Alaska to Europe to New York with a few stops in between. He brings over 40 years of executive experience with both global public companies, closely held corporations, and in the public sector. Most recently, he was the President and CEO of the Amalgamated Life Insurance Company and its parent, Alico Services Corporation. Amalgamated is a national provider of life insurance, medical stop loss, TPA, cost management, agency, printing and computer services with $1B in premium equivalents and $100M in assets. Dave joined Amalgamated in January 2008 and reorganized, relocated and retooled a 70 year old union-owned company. Under his leadership, the company produced steady 7 to 9% internal growth annually and retained “A” rating for ten straight years. He developed and executed successive, successful five-year strategic plans, including system upgrades in finance, claims and pension administration. Prior to joining Amalgamated, Mr. Walsh served in senior executive positions at SBLI USA, AIG, and Swiss Re. Dave was the Director of Insurance and Director of International Trade for the State of Alaska from 1990 through 1994. He served as President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and was the Co-Founder and first Chairman of the International Association of Insurance Supervisors. He served as a member of the United States delegation to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) where he was vice-Chairman of the Insurance Committee. He was a prosecutor during the construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and for ten years he served on the Anchorage, Alaska Assembly (City Council). He also taught law for a number of years. Dave earned a Master’s degree in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University, a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin, a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Alaska Pacific University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa.
