US insurer Kemper has appointed Mark Green to oversee business development and reinsurance as executive vice president.
Green will continue reporting to Kemper president and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Lacher Jr. as well as leading the firm’s life and health division until a successor is appointed.
He has served as president of life and health since 2016 and, prior to that, held senior executive roles with Allstate, AIX Group, Wells Fargo Insurance Services, Chubb Financial Solutions, and Swiss Re.
“When I arrived at Kemper four years ago, the company faced a lot of challenges,” said Lacher.
“Mark joined us in 2016 and took on responsibility for both business development and leadership of the life and health division. Since that time, we’ve made tremendous progress on our transformation and are at a point in our evolution where our plans for long-term growth will benefit from focused leadership in each area.
Mark’s strong entrepreneurial background and his understanding of how to create growth strategies makes him well-suited for this new role,” added Lacher.
“Mark will also have the opportunity to leverage his reinsurance expertise, an area of increasing importance to the company as we grow.”
