Patriot National Insurance Group, a provider of workers' compensation insurance products and alternative market solutions, has appointed Paul Halter as new regional vice president of the newly created Southeast region.

In his new role, Halter will establish a Patriot National regional office in Charlotte, North Carolina and will take responsibility for the states of Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

Earlier to Patriot National, Halter was senior vice president of US operations for Atlas Insurance Management. Halter has also held leadership positions with Commerce Casualty Group, Crum & Forster and Marsh & McLennan.

Patriot National Insurance Group CEO and chairman of the board Steven Marianosaid said Paul has rejoined the Patriot National team and his experience in both traditional and alternative market workers’ compensation insurance gives him the ideal background to manage Patriot’s growth in our Southeastern states.
