MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) announced on Monday that Katie Yeutter would become the new President of WMC Insurance & Safety Services. She will also continue to serve as WMC’s Chief Operating Officer/Chief Financial Officer.
Yeutter’s new title reflects her increased oversight and management of WMC Insurance and Wisconsin Safety Council – two affiliate organizations of WMC.
Under her leadership, WMC Insurance has grown its line of business rapidly. This includes the recent launch of EmployerPulse, WMC Insurance’s Association Health Plan that was formed in partnership with United Healthcare. WMC Insurance also offers dental, vision, and group life and disability coverage to its members.
Wisconsin Safety Council has similarly seen tremendous expansion thanks to Yeutter’s vision and guidance. In 2018 alone, the Safety Council performed more public and private trainings than ever before, had a record-setting and sold-out crowd at its annual conference and was recently named an Honor Chapter by the National Safety Council.
“Katie is a natural entrepreneur who instinctively sees market opportunities and knows how to seize them,” said Kurt Bauer, WMC President & CEO. “She is also a gifted problem-solver, and the two combined skill sets are formidable assets for WMC.”
Progressing toward 2019, Yeutter will continue the expansive development of both lines of business for WMC, which will create new opportunities to better serve the organization’s members.
“An important part of WMC’s mission of serving Wisconsin’s business community is providing affordable products and services,” said Yeutter, who joined WMC in 2016. “My goal is build top quality product lines that offer WMC member businesses a competitive advantage.”
Yeutter has an MBA with a focus on management and earned her Master of Science in Accountancy. Yeutter resides in Sun Prairie with her husband, three sons and their dog, Thomas.
