“PCI is a strong voice for the insurance industry during a time of tremendous
challenge,” said Restrepo. “At the same time, our industry’s never been better
capitalized and never more disciplined. I’m committed to building on the
strength of the PCI team and promoting progress on issues that are important
to our members and, ultimately, policyholders throughout the nation.”

Among Restrepo’s objectives for his term are achieving a bipartisan approach
to renewing the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, and maintaining the
industry’s successful state-based regulatory system in the face of threats at
the national and international level.

Restrepo is currently chairman of the board of trustees of the Columbus
College of Art and Design (CCAD) and a member of the Columbus Partnership. He
also serves on the board of directors of the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, The
Institutes, the Insurance Information Institute and Nuclear Electric Insurance
Limited. Restrepo previously served as chairman of the American Insurance
Association, and he and his wife, Mary Frances, served as co-chairs of the
2011 campaign of the United Way of Central Ohio.
