The ProMutual Group, a provider of medical liability insurance, has named Anne Huben-Kearney as its new vice president of risk management, effective September 15, 2008.

Ms Huben-Kearney has been with the company for six years in the role of manager in the risk management department. In her former position at the ProMutual Group, Ms Huben-Kearney responsibilities included the management of staff as well as technical field work with policyholders.

A major part of Ms Huben-Kearney’s new role will be to lead the company’s risk management department as it embarks on several new initiatives that will expand the scope of its responsibilities.

Richard Brewer, president and CEO of the ProMutual Group, said: The knowledge and experience Anne has gained in the hospital settings as well as her tenure here with us will serve as a solid platform as she assumes her new role with the organization.
