Ironshore has announced the appointment of Thomas F. Leahy Jr. as president of IronPro, the company’s professional and management liability division. Leahy will oversee all aspects of marketing, underwriting and distribution of IronPro professional and management liability lines to retail and wholesale markets.

Leahy has been with Ironshore for more than 12 years. In 2007, he helped launch IronPro and establish its underwriting operations for professional and management lines. Most recently, he served as executive vice president and chief underwriting officer for IronPro’s management liability book of $290 million in premium. In that role, he oversaw 85 specialty underwriters in 12 locations across the country.
Prior to that, Leahy served at AIG’s National Union Fire Company as executive vice president of national accounts for financial lines. He has also held positions at Axcelera Specialty Risk and Reliance National Insurance Company.
