Retired employees association names new leadership
The Retired Indiana Public Employees Association has named Jessica Love executive director, succeeding Bill Murphy, who retired after more than 43 years with the nonprofit. RIPEA was created by the Indiana Legislature to protect the benefits of retired and working members of the Public Employee Retirement Fund.
Love previously served as executive director of Prosperity Indiana, a non-profit advocacy group focused on societal issues.
“We are excited to see how Jessica’s experience and expertise in government advocacy, communications, and membership development will position RIPEA to make an even bigger impact in the lives and well-being of retired Indiana public employees,” said Roger Parent, president of RIPEA’s Board of Directors.
As RIPEA’s new Executive Director, Love will steward the association’s efforts to protect and enhance the benefits of retired and working members of the Public Employee Retirement Fund (PERF), improving the quality of life of PERF retirees across the State.
“We are looking forward to seeing where Jessica takes RIPEA in the future!”
Currently, there are over 45,000 RIPEA members. Love begins her role Monday.
