     HAMMONDInsurance executive C. Allen Bradley Jr. of DeRidder will present Southeastern Louisiana University's annual James and Evelyn Livingston Memorial Lecture on Business Ethics April 17 at 7 p.m. at the Student Union Theatre.

     The lecture is sponsored by the College of Business and is free to the public. The lecture series was founded in 1984 by Hammond businessman John O. Batson in memory of his long‑time friend and associate James Livingston. The series also honors Livingston’s wife Evelyn, who was an active community volunteer for many years.

     Bradley is the president and chief executive officer of Amerisafe, a worker’s compensation firm headquartered in DeRidder that specializes in insurance for hazardous industries. The billion-dollar company does business in more than 40 states with nearly 600 employees nationwide.

     A graduate of Southeastern with a Bachelor of Arts degree, he earned a degree in law from LSU. He also holds the professional designation of certified risk manager.

     Bradley was engaged in a private law practice until 1984 when he was elected to the first of four terms in the Louisiana House of Representatives. As a legislator he chaired the Civil Law and Procedure Committee and the Agriculture and Forestry Committee. Bradley served on the State Bond Commission and was chair of the Legislative Rural Caucus.

     He was named Amerisafe’s senior vice president and general counsel in 1997 and was promoted in 2000 to executive vice president and general counsel with responsibility of managing underwriting, underwriting services and safety services. He was named to his current position in 2004 and continues to serve as the company’s primary contact with insurance regulatory agencies, legislative committees and executive department officials.
