Phil will be a great partner, working with the board of directors to protect the interests of policyholders and injured workers and to ensure Pinnacol’s long-term success.”

Mr. Kalin said he was “humbled and thrilled to be selected Pinnacol’s president and CEO.”

“My commitment is to stay focused on Pinnacol’s long-standing tradition of providing outstanding customer service, to helping our policyholders create and maintain safe workplaces and to providing compassionate care to Colorado’s injured workers,” he said in the statement. “I also look forward to collaborating with stakeholders across the state to ensure that Pinnacol is a true partner in making Colorado the best place in the country to grow a business, live and work.”
