SECURA honors retiring Senior Vice President–Claims Scott Huiras, promotes Larry Wright


Appleton, Wisconsin (April 21, 2015) —

SECURA Insurance Senior Vice President–Claims, Scott Huiras, is retiring August 2015 after 38 years of service. The company is promoting Larry Wright to Vice President–Claims, effective April 27, 2015, to take over leadership of its claims division upon Huiras’ retirement.

Huiras joined SECURA in 1976 as a graduate of Boston University School of Law and served in several roles. He most recently led Claims for 13 years and was a major contributor throughout his career to the company's success and growth as a super-regional mutual insurance carrier.

“Scott's greatest contribution to SECURA is how he took what some considered average claims service and elevated it to exceptional service,” says Dave Gross President and CEO. “He created a culture of caring, and focused on hiring knowledgeable people with a heart of compassion for those they serve.”

Huiras’ other roles at SECURA were as a Claims Attorney, Project Manager in IT, and Vice President–IT.

Wright joined SECURA in 1997 as an analyst/programmer in the company’s IT division. Since that time, he welcomed numerous challenges and took on new roles, showcased by his transition from Director–IT to a Claims Representative, a Supervisor in Workers’ Compensation, a Litigation Coordinator in our Casualty Claims Department, and finally his most recent role where he returned to IT leadership to oversee software development projects.

“We conducted an extensive internal search to find the one person who brought the best combination of leadership, vision, and expertise – and Larry stood out,” says Gross. “His skills are only surpassed by his dedication to carry on the caring culture that Scott Huiras established among our team.”

Wright earned his bachelor’s degree in business and information technology from the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire, and most recently earned his master’s degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh. In addition, he achieved his Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation.

In the coming months, Huiras and Wright will work closely to create a seamless transition.
