DFIT Trustees

From the January 2023 DFIT Stewardship meeting- honoring Michael Petit deMange (recently retired as Kent County Administrator) for his 14 years of service and outstanding leadership to the DFIT. Mike was a legacy Trustee and Vice Chair, and his untiring dedication and unwavering commitment were critical in the formation of the first municipal joint insurance Workers Compensation program in Delaware’s history!
