Insurance firm Horace Mann has appointed Paul Haley as chief risk officer.

Haley has led risk assessments for the company’s business development efforts since 2018. “This appointment expands his role to lead risk management efforts across the entire organization,” said President and CEO Marita Zuraitis.

Haley’s insight into Horace Mann’s business strategy and actuarial background makes him ideally suited to take day-to-day responsibility for the company’s enterprise risk management program. He will report to CFO Bret Conklin, who oversees Horace Mann’s ERM processes.

Haley has 35 years of experience in the life insurance sector, holding senior actuarial positions at Genworth Financial, Colonial Life, and Prudential Financial before joining Horace Mann in 2018.
