posted April 26, 2019
After 16 years of dedicated service to SAIF and our policyholders, VP of underwriting Bruce Hoffman retired on March 29.
"I have never seen Bruce waver in his fundamental principles of doing what's right for our policyholders, their workers, and the workers' compensation system," SAIF CEO Kerry Barnett declared. "‘If we can, we should' continues to be the mantra in underwriting, an important differentiator from our competitors. Bruce's impact has been broad and deep."
Chief actuarial officer Laura Robison has taken on leadership of the underwriting and premium audit functions, in addition to her responsibilities with the actuarial team.
Robison served as Oregon's insurance commissioner prior to coming to SAIF, as well as chief financial officer of the Oregon Health Authority. "She has the comprehensive knowledge, skills, and management experience to serve in this expanded role," Barnett said.
In addition, the billing and collections team now reports to Gina Manley, VP of finance.
These changes took effect on April 1.
