Specialty Program Group (SPG) has announced two key changes in its management team.
Christopher Lamitola (pictured above) has joined the specialty insurer as chief sales officer, replacing Yiana Stavrakis (pictured below) who has been named president of SPG subsidiary Monarch E&S Insurance Services.
Prior to joining SPG, Lamitola served as territory sales leader at All State Insurance Company in New York. He also spent 12 years with Liberty Mutual Insurance, most recently holding the position of senior territory manager.
Lamitola will provide strategic sales and marketing guidance to acquired business partners.
Meanwhile, Stavrakis will head SPG’s MGA and wholesale brokerage subsidiary, which it acquired in 2017. She has been with SPG since 2015, shortly after its establishment.
Chris Treanor, SPG president and chief executive officer, expressed excitement about the key appointments.
“Having both Chris and Yiana in leadership roles at SPG is a winning combination,” he said. “They both have the expertise and track records to take our company to the next level as we continue to grow and lead the market in innovative program and specialty businesses.”
