Alfa Insurance® Senior Vice President of Claims Bryan Hubbard announced the retirement of Regional Vice President of Claims Mike Lovelady, effective July 1.
During his 35-year tenure with Alfa®, Lovelady served as a leader within Alfa’s Claims Department. He began his career in 1986 as a claims adjuster in Thomasville, Alabama, before relocating to Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Lovelady was promoted to District Claims Manager in 2001 and Regional Vice President in 2014.
Hubbard said while Lovelady’s retirement is well-deserved, his tenacity, leadership and enthusiasm will be missed.
“Mike is one of the finest claims leaders in the industry and is tremendously admired by his peers and coworkers,” Hubbard said. “Under his leadership, he has helped develop a strong team renowned for the exceptional customer service they provide to Alfa customers. We wish him all the best in this next chapter.”
Building on Lovelady’s leadership and passion for the Claims team is newly promoted Regional Vice President of Claims David Bailey.
Hubbard said Bailey’s experience will serve him well in this new role.
“David has a strong work ethic and a passion for the claims business,” Hubbard said. “He is a proven leader, and I am excited to work with him to develop an even stronger Claims team.”
Bailey said he is eager to take on this new role.
“I look forward to leading the exceptional people we have on our team,” he said. “Alfa’s Claims Department is second to none, and I am thankful for the opportunity to continue to help our company provide exceptional customer service.”
Bailey joined Alfa in 2005 as an adjuster and has held various positions throughout the company, including Subrogation Specialist, Physical Damage Manager and District Claims Manager. After earning a bachelor’s degree in International Studies from Brigham Young University, Bailey earned an Associate Degree in Claims from the Insurance Institute of America. He also holds a Certificate of Legal Studies from Huntingdon College, earned his Juris Doctorate degree from the Birmingham School of Law and is a member of the Alabama Bar Association.
