Chiarizzio will be based in Los Angeles, CA and report to EPIC southwest region president KJ Wagner.

Chiarizzio joins from Willis Towers Watson.

Schwen will be based in Dallas, TX and will also report to Wagner. He is responsible for new business development, as well as the design, placement and management of P&C insurance programs. Schwen most recently served as charter school practice leader for AssuredPartners.

Zetterower will also be based in Dallas and will similarly report to Wagner. He is also in charge of new business development in the region. He will help provide risk management strategies and solutions to mid-market and large clients. Just like Schwen, Zetterower joins from AssuredPartners where he served as vice-president.

“We are thrilled to continue the growth of our Property & Casualty operation in the Southwest Region,” commented EPIC southwest region president KJ Wagner on the appointments.
