  • Kemper Direct, operating in run-off mode
  • Shared services supporting the property & casualty segment, including legal, claims, technology, human resources, project management and finance

Denise Lynch, Kemper Property & Casualty Group executive, will continue to lead the new segment. Reporting directly to Lynch will be Brian Delfino, Kemper Personal and Commercial Lines general manager, Tim Bruns, Kemper Specialty California general manager, as well as the general managers of Kemper Direct and the shared services functional leaders. Additionally, Pete Hansen will become senior vice president for property/casualty claims.

Andrea James, Kemper Preferred’s president for the past year, is leaving the company.
