RICHARDSON, Texas — Nearly two months after an arbitration hearing ruled in his favor, Kevin M. Curley, the president of Texans Insurance Group who was fired in April 2007 and filed suit against the CUSO and Texans Credit Union started back at work on Sept. 1.
Matt Davis, executive vice president at $2 billion Texans CU, confirmed that Curley was reinstated on Sept. 1 and has been paid back pay and benefits. He did not provide further details on the matter.
According to Curley’s suit, Texans Insurance Group fired him for insubordination, failure to set up an enhanced benefits package, failure to set up an office for Gary Kirkindoll, president of Texans Services Group, engaging in engaged in discussions with a CUSO accounting clerk about a potential job opportunity with one of Curley’s other companies and the alleged unauthorized issuance of tail policies.
On July 8, arbitrator Susan Soussan determined Curley was fired without reasonable or justifiable cause and ruled that he is entitled to his job back and the payment of back pay and benefits. Attorneys for Curley said at the time, the executive was due to be paid roughly $350,000.
