Durham, NC - Charles (Chip) Kyles has been appointed as the new director for Workers' Compensation.  He will begin his role at Duke on March 29, 2013.

Chip, who earned his law degree from the University of North Carolina, has practiced law for the last 11 years, with the majority of his practice focused on workers' compensation issues.

"He knows Duke and our Workers' Compensation staff well, having represented us on multiple cases during the last four years as an attorney at Stuart Law Firm in Raleigh," said Kyle Cavanaugh, vice president for administration.

Chip will report to Joyce Williams, assistant vice president for Benefits, and work closely with colleagues across Duke to continue ongoing efforts to create a safer work environment, limit accidents and injuries, and reduce workers' compensation claims.

"We are excited to have someone with Chip's experience and knowledge to lead our Workers' Compensation efforts at Duke," Cavanaugh said.
