Des Plaines, Ill. — Susan Hood, claims VP, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. and chair of the board of governors of the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) announced today that Robert Bryant will retire as NICB president and CEO, effective at the close of business today, Sept. 2, 2008.

At NICB, Bryant was the force behind the creation of Medical Fraud Task Forces and the Strategic and Tactical Information Department. He supported cutting-edge technology, such as license plate readers, bait cars and enhanced analytical tools for detecting fraud trends. He was an early and consistent voice nudging the NICB membership toward providing their salvage claims data to the public as a consumer protection against unsafe vehicles. His efforts materialized with the launch of NICB's member-supported VINCheck vehicle history service on June 30, 2008, a first-of-a-kind free benefit for the public.
