Tim Feld, who has been director of legal services and assistant general counsel since 2016, was named general counsel for the company. He previously was a founding partner with Feld & Hassman in Lexington, and represented one of several coal companies in Napier v. Enterprise Mining Co. The state Supreme Court in the case this year reversed an appeals court and found that an 8% impairment rating for hearing loss was not unreasonable.

Feld, a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law, replaces Michelle Landers, who resigned last year.

Scott Brown was named legal manager. He was recently with Fowler Bell, where he managed the workers' compensation practice. He has more than 20 years of experience, most of it in workers' compensation, the company's news release said.

Elizabeth Paul was promoted to vice president of strategy, innovation and marketing. She began at KEMI in 2008 and has been in a number of roles, including oversight of the premium audit, safety, customer service and document management teams.

Patrick Simpson is now director of internal audit. Simpson has been with KEMI since 2007, as senior internal auditor and underwriter. He is a certified internal auditor, designated by the Institute of Internal Auditing.

Allyson Smith has been promoted to associate general counsel. She came to KEMI in 2016 after practicing workers' comp law at Fogle, Keller, Purdy in Lexington. She earned her bachelor's degree from Vanderbilt University and her law degree from the University of Kentucky.

Jeremy Terry was promoted to vice president of policyholder services. He has been with KEMI since 2003 as an underwriter, supervisor and director of underwriting. He is an associate in general insurance and a chartered property casualty underwriter.

The changes come four months after a state auditor's report that questioned some of KEMI's spending on no-bid contracts, and bar and restaurant tabs. The KEMI Board of Directors reduced CEO Jon Stewart's salary after the audit and placed him on a year-to-year contract.
