Irwin Siegel Agency bolsters executive team

Irwin Siegel Agency (ISA), a Ryan Specialty Group managing general underwriter focused on the human and social service industry, has announced two additions to its executive management team. Jennifer Johnston has joined ISA as vice president of underwriting in the company’s newly formed E&S division, and Karen Skiba has joined as assistant vice president of claims.

In her new role, Johnston will lead the growth and development of ISA’s new excess and surplus lines program, with a focus on underserved and loss-sensitive human service organizations. Johnston is a career insurance executive, ISA said.

“I am very excited to have Jen join our executive team to build our new excess and surplus lines social service program,” said Howard Siegel, CEO of ISA. “Her deep experience and proven leadership skills are the right blend to lead us in this new initiative.”

“I have worked with Karen over the past 10 years handling various strategic claims objectives, and she has proven herself again and again,” Siegel said. “I am equally thrilled to have Karen join the team and add her expertise to our many programs.”
