Tricia Griffith      

President & CEO of Progressive

Tricia Griffith was named the CEO of Progressive Insurance in July of 2016. Her journey at Progressive began in 1988, when she joined the company as an entry-level claims representative. Since then, Griffith has held several leadership positions, including Chief Human Resources Officer, President of Claims, President of Customer Operations and Personal Lines Chief Operating Officer.

During her tenure as CEO, Griffith has led the company to historic growth, earning her Fortune Magazine’s 2018 Businessperson of the Year. Much of that growth is the result of her strategic approach to increase the company’s book of business among a preferred segment of customers who bundle home and auto insurance. Under her leadership, Progressive customers in that segment have grown from 400,000 to more than 1 million. She’s leading Progressive through that pursuit while continuing to grow the company’s traditional auto business, as Progressive moved from fourth to third on the list of US auto insurers, based on written premium, in 2018.

While her business acumen has driven results, it’s her approachable and authentic leadership style that many employees will cite as a key to the company’s success. Tricia puts a premium on creating a diverse and inclusive environment for all employees and speaks frequently about the importance of bringing your whole self to work. The efforts have paid off.
