Standard Insurance to create 234 jobs in Altavista

Standard Insurance will open a satellite office in Altavista in September.
Standard will start with 25 to 30 employees, but is expected to employ 200 by 2019.
“We took a great deal of care in choosing this location for our new office,” Dan McMillan, vice president of Employee Benefits at The Standard said in a news release. “In addition to the concentration of talent in the area, Altavista, Lynchburg and the surrounding communities in Campbell County are a strong match with our corporate culture.”
The initial employees will be supporting the company’s Life and Disability Services department. The Altavista office will be one of five regional sites, joining Portland and Hillsboro Oregon; White Plains, New York; and Cincinnati, Ohio.
