More Information

Kimberly Salmon was named to her position at Hanover in 2020, after working for nearly a decade in a similar role as director of community relations and engagement for Fallon Health.

As head of the The Hanover Insurance Group's charitable foundation, Salmon leads the mission to benefit communities where Hanover has a major presence, touching on academic support, job opportunities for diverse youth, and health resources.

Hanover wrote $5.5 billion in premiums in 2022 and saw net income of $116 million, according to its annual report. It employs 4,600, around 1,600 locally, and has played a leading role in the local economy and community.

The annual employee giving campaign raised $1.5 million for the United Way and hundreds of other nonprofit organizations across the country. Over a 10-year period, beginning in 2011, the company reported $10 million in employee giving, $17.5 million in total charitable contributions, and $1 million in scholarships.

The foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations focused on education, health, workforce development and safety.

While continuing to sustain local support, Salmon has been concentrating on expanding the foundation’s reach, working closely with nonprofits in Michigan, where Hanover has offices.

Salmon began working in the nonprofit sector more than 30 years ago; her first job was at Prospect House, a Black social services agency founded in Worcester by her aunt, Elizabeth “Betty” Price. Salmon serves the community off the job as well and has held seats on the boards of numerous organizations, including the Worcester State Foundation, the Worcester Education Collaborative, and the Greater Worcester Community Foundation.
