GEICO names John Pham vice president of Virginia Beach regional operations

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., June 29, 2016 – GEICO has named John Pham vice president of its regional operations in Virginia Beach. Pham will oversee all business functions for Virginia and North Carolina insureds, as well as GEICO's military, motorcycle and recreational vehicle divisions.

Pham joined GEICO in 1990 as a management intern, and advanced through several claims leadership roles. He was later named a sales director, and then took over responsibility for directing GEICO's motorcycle division. In 2005, Pham was elected an assistant vice president of claims for GEICO's Fredericksburg, Va., office, and assumed the same role for GEICO's office on Long Island prior to becoming regional vice president of GEICO's New York operations.

"John has built an impressive GEICO resume working in several management roles, and most recently running operations in New York, where GEICO is the leading auto insurer," said Bill Roberts, GEICO president and chief operating officer. "I'm confident GEICO's Virginia Beach region will continue to excel under John's leadership."
In Virginia Beach, Pham succeeds Joe Thomas, who retired after a distinguished career of more than four decades with GEICO.

Pham graduated with honors from George Washington University with a degree in international affairs. He also holds the Chartered Casualty Property Underwriter (CPCU) and GEICO Certified Underwriter designations.
