Synergy Comp Names Blough as Company President

SHARON, Pa. – Synergy Comp Insurance Co. announced this week that Chris Blough has been named president of the company.

Blough has more than 20 years of executive leadership experience. He began his career in financial services and has served as president of a commercial finance company, the CEO of a credit union, and most recently as CEO of Mennonite Mutual Insurance Co. where he spent the past 7 years growing the niche P&C carrier by over $20,000,000 and expanding the company into new markets.

Blough succeeds Lew Kachulis, who made the decision to step down as president but will continue to advance the organization as CEO. Synergy Comp’s board of directors and senior management support and embrace this change and are confident Blough is the right person to build on this momentum, according to Kachulis.

“We are looking forward to Chris joining the team and are excited about Synergy Comp’s long-term future,” Kachulis said.

“Synergy has carved out a unique and valuable space in the work comp industry, and I am excited to work with Lew and the team to grow that value and build on the strong foundation,” said Blough.

“Synergy offers something very special, and I want to see that offering grow to make an even greater positive impact.”
