Executive Officer of La Capitale General Insurance, has officially retired as
of this past January 4th, after 25 years at La Capitale, during which he spent
almost 18 years at the helm, as President and Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Circé has left La Capitale General Insurance and its employees in very
