John Green, Farmers Insurance Group's regional vice president of automobile product management and chief auto actuary, died on Feb. 1, of injuries sustained in an auto accident, the company said.

Green was named to his position in June 2006 after rising through the ranks as an analyst and senior analyst, actuarial assistant and assistant actuary. A member of California's Assigned Risk Plan Board of Directors, he was awarded a Fellowship in the Casualty Actuarial Society in 1998.
