Pinnacol Assurance adds three board members

Denver, March 5, 2018 - Pinnacol Assurance, Colorado’s leading workers’ compensation insurer, welcomes Fiona Arnold, Brad Busse and Bill Lindsay to its board of directors for the term that began Jan. 1, 2018. All three were confirmed unanimously by the Colorado Senate after appointment by Gov. John Hickenlooper.

“These new board members bring the kind of business acumen Pinnacol needs to continue thriving in a rapidly changing sector,” said Howard Carver, Pinnacol board chair. “Together, they bring expertise in insurance, investments and business development, as well as a commitment to the Colorado community through civic engagement.”

Hickenlooper’s cabinet as executive director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and she has served on state commissions on workforce development and experiential learning.

Busse started Busse Ventures in 2014 after 28 years with RBC Capital Markets. He has experience with mergers and acquisitions, equity and debt capital formation, and financial advisory engagements. Since 2000, Governors Owens, Ritter and Hickenlooper have appointed Busse to serve on commissions including the Colorado Commission on Early Childhood Leadership and the Colorado Commission on Science & Technology.

Lindsay is a recognized expert in health care and insurance, especially in the small business sector. Before launching Lindsay3 Consulting, he served as the president of Lockton Companies’ Benefit Group in Denver. Bill has served on several state commissions addressing health care in Colorado, including chairing the Commission on Affordable Quality Health Care and the Blue Ribbon Commission for Health Care Reform.
