Delta Dental of Washington CEO to depart next year: 3 highlights

Jim Dwyer, Delta Dental of Washington CEO, plans to retire next year, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal.

Here are three highlights:

1. Mr. Dwyer originally planned to retire from the organization more than five years ago.

2. His retirement comes with pressure from other Delta Dental of Washington member dentists. Last year, dentists voted for various changes to be made to the organization, such as an independent review board, according to The Seattle Times.

Although dentists voted 91 percent in favor of the changes, Delta Dental of Washington's board of directors voted for no changes to be made.

3. During Mr. Dwyer's tenure his salary more than doubled to $2.75 million, according to The Seattle Times.
