In his announcement, Mr. McDonald said, "IRMI is a beacon for the entire risk management industry. My time as the captive and risk finance product manager has been an incredible high point in my career. The relationships I've made here and the many things I've learned have shaped my perspective and understanding of the captive industry and of the larger risk management world. The caliber of intelligence and sophistication that exists under the IRMI roof has enhanced my career in profoundly meaningful ways and will help me continue to add value to the captive industry."

In response to Mr. McDonald's announcement, Jack Gibson, CEO of IRMI, stated, "IRMI has maintained a strong commitment to the risk finance and captive community for several decades, and Joe made many outstanding contributions to and our other risk finance resources during his tenure here.
