Land Title Company announces retirement of president

Land Title Company recently announced that Gene Kennedy, its CEO and president, has retired from the company.

Kennedy retired after working 39 years and 10 months with the company. He served as its president and CEO since 1991.

Kennedy was a civic leader, serving on several boards with the Bremerton Chamber of Commerce and the Washington Land Title Association. Additionally, he was a 1985 Thunderbird Award recipient and founded the Annual Bellringer Golf Classic, a charity golf tournament that raised more than $100,000 during the last 25 years for the Salvation Army.

“My family kept me grounded throughout these 40 years,” Kennedy said at his retirement party. “The support of the Board of Directors and of the numerous employees of Land Title Company has meant a lot to me and I feel very blessed to have had the career I've had.”

Land Title Company's board of directors elected Steve Green to fill the president/CEO position. Green has been an employee for more than 26 years and assumed the duties of vice president and Kitsap County manager of the company in 1993. He will serve in his new capacity effective Feb. 1.
