Thieman to head Medical Mutual of Ohio NW Ohio regionWritten by Kristen Criswell | | email@example.com
Gary Thieman has been selected as the head of Medical Mutual of Ohio’s Northwest Ohio region. Thieman will serve as the company’s senior vice president of sales and customer relations for commercial business starting Aug. 16.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity, something that has kept me energized. I plan on working for the next five years with health care reform. There are lots of changes on the horizon,” he said.
Thieman isn’t sure what the changes would be yet because details of the health care reform and how it will be implemented are still coming out, he said.
As one of four senior vice presidents of commercial business at Medical Mutual, Thieman will work out of the Toledo headquarters and be responsible for all sales regions including Ohio, Georgia Indiana and South Carolina.
Thieman began his career at Medical Mutual in 1971 and has previously worked as vice president and principal of Findley Davies in Toledo.
In addition, Thieman is a member of the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Executive Committee and was previously chairman of the chamber’s board of directors.
Thieman hopes to make the public aware of all the great things Medical Mutual is doing in the community, such as employing more than 500 employees at its Sylvania Avenue office.
Thieman, who is native to Toledo, is happy to have the opportunity to remain in the region, he said.
