GIO is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors, committed to the ideals of fairness and integrity. The Board is regionally and socially diverse. Five Directors are individuals from outside the insurance industry and offer a fully independent perspective, while the other two directors are appointed from within the insurance industry.
