Meet Bob Cubbin – Meadowbrook’s President and CEO
We are delighted to have Bob Cubbin as our first M Associate Spotlight. Bob is Meadowbrook’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Bob started with Meadowbrook after practicing law at the Detroit, Michigan offices of Plunkett & Cooney. He is a graduate of Wayne State University and holds a law degree from the Detroit College of Law. Bob has been instrumental in the 1995 MIG IPO, the 2002 secondary public offering and recently with the 2015 sale to Fosun. Bob remains committed to making Meadowbrook thrive under the Fosun umbrella. Fosun interviewed Bob in December in Shanghai and asked about our business in 2015. Bob said, “We are very pleased with the progress we’ve made over the last three years. From the strong capital position that we achieved by being part of the Fosun family, we see tremendous opportunities to grow organically and by
acquisition, utilizing the US platform in order to do that.” Bob’s philosophy is simple, “Service is everything. Customers need you when they need you, our associates need to be empowered to make the decisions and take appropriate action to help our customers in the way they need to be helped.”
On a personal side, Bob and his wife, Kathy, have three grown children, and recently grew their nest of grandchildren by two, when his daughter, Christine, who currently lives in Colorado had twin boys, joining their almost two year old brother. Christine and her husband will soon be relocating to the Detroit area with their three boys. Bob and Kathy are expecting their fourth grandchild as their daughter, Lauren, who lives in New York is due in May. Their son, Doug, just completed the first Underwriting Trainee program (read about this exciting program in this edition of The M News) here at Meadowbrook and will be working with the Small Commercial Unit as his first full time assignment.
Bob has greatly enjoyed the opportunities he has had over the past year traveling to China to participate in the various Fosun meetings and events and learning best practices from diverse areas of the Fosun Family. He is excited for the future here at Meadowbrook and truly appreciates all of the dedicated associates who make Meadowbrook Insurance Group an exciting place to work.
