CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Business Wire) -- Unum (NYSE:UNM) announced today that Steven A. Zabel has been named senior vice president and chief risk officer for the company, effective August 5.

In this capacity, Zabel will be responsible for the oversight of Unum's enterprise risk management program and will relocate to the company's Chattanooga headquarters.
