"John is a strong leader with a great grasp of our business, close relationships with our agents, and a clear focus on customer experience," Murphy said in a statement.
Selective has made a number of appointments in recent months. Gordon Gaudet, formerly of Deloitte, was named EVP and CIO in May. The company also made promotions in IT security and management, as well as a new chief claims officer and application delivery SVP.
