President and CEO
CopperPoint Insurance Companies
Since becoming president and CEO of CopperPoint Insurance Companies in 2016, Marc Schmittlein has helped lead what had been a former state fund with a single product operating in a single state into a multiline super-regional commercial carrier. CopperPoint now operates in 10 states with a strategic focus on continued growth. “The CopperPoint experience is really a crowning achievement on what has been a blessed, long and rewarding career,” Schmittlein says.
Prior to joining CopperPoint, Schmittlein spent 34 years at Travelers, culminating in a stint as president and CEO of the small commercial division known as Select Accounts – a $2.7 billion business unit of Travelers’ business insurance. Schmittlein also served on Travelers’ management and operating committees and held leadership roles in the commercial divisions of St. Paul Companies and Aetna.
At CopperPoint, Schmittlein has been at the helm of a team offering industry-leading workers’ comp and commercial property & casualty insurance solutions. “Being in the P&C industry for nearly 40 years, I reflect back on all of the mentors who helped open doors for my career,” he says. “The CopperPoint family of companies is focused on building a culture that delivers positive impact in the communities where we live and work by doing what’s right. It is my hope that our core mission will allow me to provide those same purpose-driven career opportunities for the next generation of talent.”
