Pete McPartland

Chairman, President and CEO

Sentry Insurance | Stevens Point

Pete McPartland joined Sentry Mutual Holding Co. in 2010 as president and chief operating officer. Two years later, he was named chief executive officer of the Stevens Point-based mutual insurance company. Sentry has more than 4,000 employees nationwide, about half of whom work from its Stevens Point headquarters.  

In addition to the insurance business, McPartland has oversight of Sentry’s hospitality arm. It owns and operates SentryWorld, an 18-hole golf course, a new 64-room boutique hotel, a banquet facility, two restaurants and a sports complex on its main office campus. In 2023, SentryWorld will host the 43rd U.S. Senior Open, which will be the third United States Golf Association championship to be played at SentryWorld. Sentry is the insurance provider for the USGA.  

Sentry has also served as the title sponsor of the PGA Tour’s Tournament of Champions since 2018. This year, the company announced it would extend that partnership through 2035. McPartland recently said aligning itself with the PGA Tour was “one of the smartest decisions we’ve ever made.” Since becoming a title sponsor, the company has created a scholarship program for Maui Public Schools graduates and supported the Maui United Way and hunger relief in Maui County.  

Closer to home, the company’s employees and foundation donated $1.3 million to the United Way of Portage County this year, accounting for more than 40% of the organization’s 2022 goal.  

Education: Bachelor’s, University of Florida
