The Hilb Group has announced the appointment of Darren Cogen to the newly created role of senior vice president of carrier relations and insurance strategy. Cohen will report to Jason Angus, Hilb Group chief operating officer.

Cohen joined Hilb Group in December 2020 with the acquisition of Hiram Cohen & Son. In his new role, Cohen will work with carriers to ensure agency access and maximize offerings for clients. His role also encompasses key initiatives to build additional insurance products and services, such as claims management and specialized practices in support of the broader business.

“I am thrilled to begin this role and for the potential of what we can accomplish,” Cohen said. “Hilb Group has established a strong track record of growth, and I look forward to our next steps of continuing to enhance relationships with key strategic partners and build out the insurance platform.”

“We are excited to have Darren Cohen take on this new responsibility and to have a key agency leader grow into a role that enhances our broader company and strategic efforts,” Angus said. “This position is particularly important, as we will not only continue to build upon our relationships and opportunities with carrier partners, but we will also offer greater capabilities and connections for our new agencies in doing so.”

Cohen has 25 years of experience in the insurance industry. As a fourth-generation leader at Hiram Cohen & Son, Cohen has led the business in expansion of services, including nearly tripling in size to encompass building the infrastructure and processes for greater growth, Hilb Group said.
