Relation President and COO, Ed Page, Announces Retirement.
Walnut Creek, CA., December 16, 2022 —Relation Insurance Services (“Relation”) announced today the retirement of President and Chief Operating Officer Ed Page.
Page had initially planned to retire at year’s end, but continue on as a significant shareholder, board member, and strategic advisor. After a recent heart failure diagnosis, however, he has decided to completely step back from Relation as a board member/strategic advisor to fully focus on his health. At the end of December, he will transition out of all his formal roles with Relation but will still remain a significant shareholder.
“We will miss Ed and his leadership,” said Joe Tatum, Relation’s Chief Executive Officer. “He has been a driving force in the success of our company over the last 10 years and a great friend.”
Page, who has a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from M.I.T, a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from UC Berkeley, and a master’s degree in Business Administration from Stanford University, brought nearly 25 years of experience driving performance improvement for companies’ operations, finances, strategy, implementation, and organizational development to Relation. He led the team’s collaborative efforts and drove strategic planning, acquisitions, and Relation’s industry leadership. Day-to-day, he oversaw all finance and operations functions, information technology, and human resources.
“The last 10 years have been the highlight of my professional career,” Page said. “I love what we’ve built at Relation. Beyond becoming a Top 25 national brokerage, it was always my goal to make Relation a great place to work, and I think we’ve created a special place.”
Page’s prognosis is good. His plans are to travel extensively, work on his music, be physically active (golf, basketball, hiking, working out), expand his philanthropic endeavors, and spend more time with family.
“I could not be more excited about it,” he said.
