"Pat's leadership has been an instrumental part of Camico's strength, growth and success over the past nine years. His vision will ensure the company's continued guidance and support to our policyholders for years to come," said Barbich. A co-founder of the company, as well as a past president of the California Society of CPAs and founding shareholder of Barbich Hooper King Dill Hoffman, Barbich will continue to serve on the board.
