Millers Mutual Insurance is mourning the loss of Chairman of the Board Scott Newkam, who died unexpectedly on May 28, 2022. Mr. Newkam served as Chairman of the Board at Millers Mutual Insurance since 2001.

Mr. Newkam retired from Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company in 2006, where he served as President and CEO. His passion for giving back to the community is evident through the numerous boards he sat on, most recently serving as a director of The High Real Estate Group and a member of the Board of Trustees for Mount St. Mary’s.

“We are incredibly thankful for the outstanding leadership, guidance and wisdom Scott brought to our organization as he served as Chairman of the Board for the past 21 years,” said Jonah Mull, President & CEO. “His presence will be greatly missed at Millers.”

“Scott was a true leader and mentor to so many people,” said Dave Lavery, Director. “His insight and guidance will be deeply missed. It has been a privilege for me and the other board members to work alongside Scott.”

The Millers team offers our thoughts, prayers, and support to the entire Newkam family at this difficult time. For media inquiries please contact Katie Gouldner, PR & Marketing Communications Specialist at or 717.480.1696.
