"My time at Allstate has been very rewarding and I'll always value the opportunity I've had to contribute to a company with such strong commitment to its customers and the communities it serves across the country," said Walker. "I'm confident the company's best days are ahead under the strong leadership of Allstate's executive team. I'll miss the terrific group of individuals who make up Allstate's Corporate Relations department."
