In their new roles, Setzer will be based in Georgia while Johnson will be in Denver. They will focus on strengthening relationships with key brokers and clients, securing new business as well as providing general underwriting support to the overall aviation business in North America.
Setzer has more than 30 years’ experience in the aerospace industry. He has held positions at AIG Aerospace, Global Aerospace and Travelers, and was most recently vice president with Berkley Aviation.

“Both Scott and Adam bring a depth of experience and passion important to our brokers and clients,” stated Dave Warfel, head of aviation, North America. “Change is constant within our industry, but certain factors remain consistent to our success - such as the need for solution-oriented thinking and customer centricity. We are happy to welcome them to the team and look forward to their contributions.”
