BMS Re, the specialty reinsurance division of the global broking group BMS, has announced the addition of six new hires to its growing MGA business, ProLink Solutions.

The new team members include Alicia Santocki, joining as executive vice president, Scott Fields and Stephanie Fick as senior vice presidents, Colin Curran and Charles Ill as assistant vice presidents, and Cora Cruz as an executive assistant. In addition, Brenda Martinez-Cox has been promoted to technical broker.

ProLink Solutions was established within BMS Re in mid-2023. It has since managed programs with premiums across its business portfolio now nearing $6 billion. The business has cultivated relationships with over 50 insurance carriers, working with 20 of the largest MGAs/MGUs, and engaging more than 80 program managers. These new hires reflect a 40% increase in ProLink’s personnel, taking the total team size from 15 to 21.

Santocki brings to the role extensive experience from GMG Assurance and Freeman Mathis & Gary, LLP, the news release noted. Fields joins ProLink Solutions from a previous role as managing director at a captive management company in Atlanta. Fick’s most recent experience was at Swiss Re as a senior treaty underwriter. Curran comes from Berkley Asset Protection, Cruz from ScotiaBank Equity Capital Markets, and Ill from Aon. Martinez-Cox’s promotion to technical broker follows her stint at BMS Re, starting in January 2024.

“With these appointments the team at ProLink Solutions goes from 15 to 21 people, a great marker of how much we have been able to expand in a year. The new appointments bring a mixture of fresh talent and industry experience which will strengthen the team in all areas, supporting our clients as demand continues to grow, and building on the excellent platform ProLink has developed so far,” said Desmond Bonhan, managing director at BMS Re ProLink Solutions.

John Speckman, also a managing director at BMS Re ProLink Solutions, echoed the enthusiasm.

“The substantial growth of the ProLink Solutions team is propelled by demand, showcasing our swift expansion and prominent position we’ve achieved in the programs space within just a year of inception.
