US insurer Kemper has added Ismat Aziz as Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) and Chief Administrative Officer.

Kemper-Auto-LogoAziz will report to Joseph Lacher, Jr., Kemper President and CEO, and will be based at Kemper’s headquarters office in Chicago.

“I’m pleased to welcome Ismat to our leadership team in a key role to help us advance our human resources strategies and policies in an era of high growth for Kemper,” said Lacher.

“She brings deep expertise in talent development, change management, operational efficiency, and a proven ability to lead HR in a growing organisation.

“Ismat will help us ensure we continue to build an agile culture of diversity, inclusivity and personal growth, while attracting and retaining the talent to meet the evolving needs of our stakeholders. I’m confident that her leadership will have a significant impact on Kemper’s growth and success.”
