One of the industry’s most high-profile marketing jobs is open after more than a decade. Jeff Charney, who has worked as the chief marketing officer of Progressive Insurance since 2010, plans to retire in January of 2022, he announced today.
He noted that the timing feels right following a year of upheaval.
"Our proven Marketing team has weathered countless challenges over the past decade, however, seeing how effective they were in navigating through the world's largest crisis—COVID-19—makes me even more confident in the timing of my decision,” Charney said in a statement. “I love this brand and am so proud of my team, the marketing characters we've all created, and the true character of the Progressive culture that I've been so fortunate to be a part of.”
