Great American Names Standlee President of Equine Mortality Division

July 15, 2005

Cincinnati-based property/casualty insurer Great American Insurance Group announced that Kendel D. Standlee has been promoted to president of its equine mortality division.

The division supports the largest equine mortality operation in the United States and is the country’s leading insurer of this specialized business niche. Under Standlee’s direction, the equine mortality division experienced one of its strongest growth years in 2004 while posting the best profitability numbers in its history, the company said in a statement.

Standlee brings significant expertise to his new position. Standlee joined North America Livestock Inc. in 1987 as an underwriter. That company was purchased by Great American in 1990. He became the manager of the equine mortality division in 1998 and since then, the division’s gross written premium had increased to over $80 million at the end of 2004, a 15 percent compound annual growth rate.
