Introducing Our New Regional Structure and Leadership Team

Exciting new changes are happening with our field leadership and organizational structure. We have expanded the number of service regions from two to four and appointed a Senior Vice President (SVP) over each region. The SVP’s are responsible for the performance and delivery of services provided within the region and ensuring our business relationships with you and your clients are running smoothly.  All four regions report to a newly appointed Executive Vice President of Field Operations.

This regional realignment will contribute to improving our processes and create a better customer experience for you and your clients. We value your partnership and anticipate an even stronger level of engagement with you.

State Fund continues to invest in our business, and we look forward to introducing more enhancements in the near future.  As always, if you have any questions, please call on your Marketing Representative or our Broker Hotline at 1-800-834-2393.
