In her new role, Riddle is responsible for the strategic direction of claims operations and medical cost management at Accident Fund, a workers' compensation carrier. She succeeds Steve Cooper, who was recently named president of United Heartland, the New Berlin, Wis., subsidiary of Accident Fund Holdings, Inc.

"We chose Lisa for this new role because she has proven herself to be an exceptional performer in her relatively short tenure here at Accident Fund," said Mike Britt, president of Accident Fund. "She brings a great deal of claims experience to this position and is committed to managing medical costs while ensuring that injured workers get the care they need. We're excited about her contributions to our organization and look forward to her continued impact as she takes on additional responsibilities."
