Randy Yoder begins Jan. 1, 2008, as director of Insurance Services for the Brethren Benefit Trust (BBT). He will work part-time out of his home in Huntingdon, Pa., with periods in the Elgin (Ill.) offices of BBT twice a month.

Since April 2006, Yoder has served as interim director of the Brethren Insurance Plans for BBT.

He will continue working with the agency's Wellness Program, and also will have responsibility for exploring and developing new initiatives in insurance and insurance services.
