Lansing, Mich. June 6, 2016

AF Group today announced the appointment of Lisa Corless as president and Bryan Bogardus as executive vice president and chief operating officer.

“AF Group has been highly successful in providing workers’ compensation insurance for more than a century, and it is due in large part to the talented and visionary leadership team that has met the challenges of our changing industry,” said Elizabeth Haar, executive vice president and president of Emerging Markets for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) and CEO of AF Group. “Both Lisa and Bryan are committed to excellence and innovation and will lead a new era of growth and diversification for our organization. I am extremely pleased and confident they will effectively guide AF Group to even greater success.”

Corless previously served AF Group as senior vice president, chief administration officer and chief of staff. Prior to joining AF Group in 2013, Corless was chief operating officer with Texas Mutual Insurance with responsibilities for all insurance operations.

“I am excited to be part of such a tremendous organization--one that has protected businesses, cared for injured workers and partnered with remarkable agents for more than 100 years,” said Corless. “AF Group represents one of the top providers of innovative insurance solutions in the country and I am grateful for this significant opportunity.”

Bogardus has served as president of AF Group’s CompWest brand since 2011, leading it through a successful turnaround effort in the highly challenging California workers’ compensation market. He previously served in executive roles at SeaBright Insurance Company and Safeco Insurance.

AF group was founded in 1912 as a Michigan accident fund and has experienced significant growth from a state agency to a customer-centric organization with strong core competencies. AF Group presently supports four brands: Accident Fund, United Heartland, CompWest and Third Coast Underwriters--who specialize protecting organizations from unpredictable and significant costs related to workplace injuries and achieving the best outcomes for injured workers.
