Fowler Named President of Premium Finance Firms

Richard E. Fowler has been named president and chief executive officer of AFCO, CAFO and Prime Rate Premium Finance Companies. Fowler succeeds the late Daryl Zupan, who passed away on Oct. 12.

Fowler had previously been executive vice president and North American sales manager of the three affiliated companies.

The North Carolina-based AFCO and Prime Rate offer insurance premium financing in the U.S. while CAFO does so in Canada.
