Wayne Taylor

As a fifth-generation Adventist, Wayne placed a high priority on doing those things that good church members are supposed to do while shunning (at least outwardly) the no-nos. This approach to life helped him secure a diploma from Highland Adventist Academy, and later, a BA degree from Southern College--both in Tennessee.

Drafted after college, Wayne went through army basic training at Ft. Sam Houston, Texas, serving out the rest of his service time in Washington state.

"In college, I had prepared to be a 'politically correct' teacher in Adventist schools," says Taylor, "But apparently overlooked the fact that there would be kids under my tutelage." Following a very brief but sufficient encounter with the classroom, Wayne eventually became an underwriter for a large property and casualty insurance company.

After many years in the commercial insurance business, Wayne's dream of denominational employment was fulfilled and he has spent 21 of the past 26 years working for the Church. Most of that time has been in health care, where he has carried the responsibility for one of the largest hospital-based liability insurance and risk management programs in the world. He is the President of Healthcare Excess Liability Management and of Adhealth, Ltd., both owned jointly by the various Adventist hospital systems in the United States. "Discounting just a few bad days here and there, it has been a blast!"
