McPartland named Sentry Insurance chairman


STEVENS POINT (WAOW) – Sentry Insurance has named President and Chief Executive Officer Peter McPartland as chairman of its board of directors.

He succeeds Dale Schuh, who retires Friday after more than 40 years with the company.

McPartland joined Sentry in August 2010 as president and chief operating officer and he was named chief executive officer last year.

Schuh recommended his replacement.

There will always be new challenges for the insurance industry, especially when it comes to information technology, e-commerce and government regulation,” Schuh said in a statement. “The board and I have the utmost confidence that Pete is the right person to lead this company forward.”

McPartland, a graduate of the University of Florida, has held executive jobs with Aetna and Fireman's Fund Insurance Co. and worked in Wisconsin for General Casualty Co. for several years. Prior to joining Sentry, he was president of Golden Eagle Insurance in San Diego, a subsidiary of Liberty Mutual.

Sentry, which was founded in 1904 and is headquartered in Stevens Point, employs more than 2,200 workers in three offices, providing property and casualty insurance, life insurance, annuities and retirement programs for businesses and people.
