STEVE QUEYROUZE NAMED LRA SIF SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

METAIRIE, La.-The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) is pleased to name Steve Queyrouze as LRA Self Insurer's Fund for workers' compensation Senior Vice President. Queyrouze began his new role January 23, 2012 and will oversee 22 staff members.

"I am excited to be joining an association that is a leader in its class both regionally and nationally for 30 years," said Queyrouze. "I look forward to working with the LRA's membership and the staff to continue that success."

A New Orleans native, Queyrouze has more than 20 years of business experience as an entrepreneur, owning and managing Ruth's Chris Steak Houses in Louisiana, Oregon, and Washington. During his tenure in the restaurant business, Queyrouze was one of the organizers of a franchisee council serving both as a council member and president, working closely with the parent organization and other franchisees.

Before moving to Washington, Queyrouze worked as an attorney in New Orleans focused primarily on insurance related matters as well as serving as in house counsel for insurance companies. During this time he was involved in underwriting review, claim management and litigation. He earned his undergraduate degree in finance from Loyola University and his law degree from Tulane University Law School.

"We are excited to have Steve's experience, not only in restaurant management, but also his insurance background," said LRA President & CEO Stan Harris. "We are fortunate Steve and his family made the choice to return to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and his expertise can further grow our important industry."
