PAI lost our company president, David J. Huntington, who passed away peacefully the week before Thanksgiving. David had planned to retire from PAI at the end of the year. For those who did not know David well, he worked at BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina (BCBSSC) for an amazing 47 years, and had led PAI since 1984. David was also an accomplished musician, an avid golfer, and a proud father and grandfather. He will be greatly missed.

George Stiles, our Chief Operating Officer, has been newly appointed as PAI’s President to continue in David’s legacy.

George has been with the BCBSSC family of companies for 27 years. Like his predecessor, George has had a diverse and successful career path beginning as a Claims Processor for our Medicare contractor subsidiary, Palmetto GBA. During his career, he has held various management positions within both our government programs and commercial businesses. Over the last 15 years, he has assumed a more senior leadership role over PAI’s operational teams and was recently promoted to our Chief Operating Officer. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received his MBA from Southern Wesleyan University.
