LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jeff Borkowski has been named chief executive officer of ClearPath Mutual Insurance Company effective Sept. 1.
ClearPath Mutual’s current CEO, Gregory L. Buie, will act as a consultant to the company until his retirement on Dec. 31.
“It has been a great honor to serve as CEO for ClearPath Mutual, and formerly KESA, since assuming control of the company in 1993,” said Buie. “We have made significant progress in growing the company over my 25 years of tenure, and I am very proud of our recent reorganization to a mutual insurance company. ClearPath Mutual is now perfectly positioned to continue its successful execution of the company’s top priorities.
“The ClearPath Mutual Board of Directors and I are confident that Jeff is the right person to assume control of the company and lead it to great heights,” Buie continued. “He is a seasoned leader with significant experience in all facets of the property and casualty insurance industry.”

We have an exceptionally talented and experienced team, and I look forward to our future growth opportunities.”
