Perrysburg resident to lead Company’s 500-Employee Toledo Office
TOLEDO – Frank Bloomquist has been named vice president of Sales for Medical Mutual of Ohio’s Northwest Region.
In addition to being responsible for growing Medical Mutual’s business in the Northwest region of Ohio, Bloomquist, a respected member of the Toledo business community with a long track record in many civic organizations, is entrusted with continuing efforts in building the company’s position as a community leader in Greater Toledo.
“I’ve been traveling a lot because of my job during the past five years,” says Bloomquist. “I can’t wait to entrench myself back into the community where I grew up and where my family chooses to live.”
He succeeds long-time Toledo businessman and community leader Gary Thieman, the company’s senior vice president of Commercial Sales, who announced his retirement after a 45-year career to take effect at the end of 2015.
Bloomquist joins Medical Mutual from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield where he served as regional vice president of Specialty Products responsible for sales and marketing in six states. He joined Anthem in 2005 as regional sales director responsible for marketing all lines of business in Northwest Ohio. In 2007, Bloomquist was promoted to regional sales vice president, a position based in Cleveland, serving in that role until accepting his current position and a move back to Toledo in 2010. Earlier in his career, Bloomquist was also employed at Toledo’s Brooks Insurance Agency.
In addition to being responsible for Medical Mutual’s Northwest Ohio group-sales effort, he will also lead the company’s Ancillary Sales across all regions of the state.
He is a board member of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Toledo, and a former board member of the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation, the Ottawa Hills Foundation and the Inverness Club.
Bloomquist earned his bachelor’s degree in History at the University of Michigan, where he was also a member of the varsity golf team. He completed the Executive Leadership program at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and the Strategic Sales Management program at the University of Michigan’s School of Business.
