MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc., the leader in technology-enabled claims and productivity management solutions, announced that Jon Wroten has been named senior vice president of regulatory compliance and quality for the company.
Recognized nationally as an innovative leader in workers' compensation self-insurance, Wroten most recently served as chief of the California Office of Self Insurance Plans in the Department of Industrial Relations and will retire from state service at the end of the month. In that position, he oversaw the nation's largest self-insurance workers' compensation market, managing regulation, compliance, underwriting and enforcement efforts for more than 7,100 public and private entities in the state. He was responsible for $22 billion in total risk exposure and worked to protect the benefits of more than 4.6 million California employees. Wroten also served as the DIR director's delegate and trustee of the California Self Insurers' Security Fund.
In his new role, Wroten will drive compliance and quality initiatives across Sedgwick, and his skills will be pivotal in helping the company continue to meet and exceed regulatory requirements while delivering improved outcomes for clients. In addition, he will continue to advocate for fair and equitable reform across the industry. Wroten's experience and the value he places on integrity in the workers' compensation system will be of great value to Sedgwick as the company maintains its focus on taking care of the employers and injured workers it serves.
Previously, Wroten served as a senior manager with the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA). During his career, he also worked as chairman of the board of the Safety Center of California and as president and chief executive officer of Security Resources Corporation, where he was recognized twice as an INC. 500 CEO.
"We are honored to have Jon join the Sedgwick team following his retirement from the State of California," said Sedgwick President and CEO David A. North. "Not only will we benefit from his background in compliance and quality, but we also look forward to exploring the ways in which his vision for how all the elements of the system come together can help us meet the ultimate goal of providing quality care to injured employees."
