COLUMBUS,Ohio (October 24, 2013) – State Auto Insurance Companies President Chairman and CEO Bob Restrepo has been elected chair of the Board of Governors of the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America

“PCI is a strong voice for the insurance industry during a time of tremendous challenge,” said Restrepo. “At the same time, our industry’s never been better capitalized and never more disciplined. I’m committed to building on the strength of the PCI team and promoting progress on issues that are important to our members and, ultimately, policyholders throughout the nation.”
Among Restrepo’s objectives for his term are achieving a bipartisan approach to renewing the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, and maintaining the industry’s successful state-based regulatory system in the face of threats at the national and international level.
Restrepo is currently chairman of the board of trustees of the Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD) and a member of the Columbus Partnership. He also serves on the board of directors of the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, The Institutes, the Insurance Information Institute and Nuclear Electric Insurance Limited.
