George Dalton Promoted to Director of Loss Control


George Dalton has been named director of loss control for Public Entity Partners after serving as assistant director of loss control since 2006. In his previous role, George managed the PE Partners Training Program, which provides extensive in-person training; spearheaded the development and launch of the Local Gov Risk Academy online training platform provided to all employees of PE Partners’ members; and developed the department’s cyber risk management checklist and training. 

George has devoted extensive time to refining the risk control surveys conducted by the property conservation and casualty loss control consultant teams. These surveys help ensure that PE Partners is providing best practice recommendations to every member. 

“Service to our members is a value that has consistently been instilled in me during my time at Public Entity Partners,” George says. “In the loss control department, we get the privilege of meeting directly with members to help them address operational challenges that could lead to employees being injured, or to liability or property losses. The success of the Loss Control Department is largely due to the efforts of Judy Housley, Paul Chambliss, Chester Darden, Bill Magoon, Andy Lacewell, Bob Lynch, and Tahtia Mitchell. On a daily basis, this group of risk management professionals are meeting and responding to the various needs of nearly 500 local governments and governmental agencies who compose our membership.” 

“I started my career working in city government, and we had our coverage with Public Entity Partners. I remember the services that I received from Public Entity Partners, and how they helped me better manage the city’s risks at that time. This experience has helped me to realize that the work we do in the loss control department is not only aimed at helping members and reduce losses by managing their risk exposures, but at the end of the day, it is about ensuring the hardworking local government employees get to go home to their families, free from injury, and that the services they provide to the taxpayers of Tennessee are provided efficiently and effectively. Last, I would be remiss if I didn’t recognize the great departmental leadership provided by Michael G. Fann; without a doubt, I have some big shoes to fill!” 

George is a native of Nashville and a graduate of Tennessee State University, and received his master’s degree in city management from East Tennessee State University. He completed his associate in risk management designation in 2001 and the risk management for public entities certificate in 2003. 

George is a recipient of the Distinguished Service Award from the Southeast Loss Control Group. He previously served as the assistant to the city manager and human resources director for the City of Alcoa.
