Starr Companies is making a number of organizational and leadership changes within its casualty business units.
In a release, Starr said that its new structure “aligns [the company’s] wealth of underwriting expertise and risk management solutions in the liability marketplace.”
The changes are as follows:
- The financial and professional liability lines are consolidating, with the resulting entity led by senior vice-president Brian Inselberg. Inselberg will also assume responsibilities for political risk and crisis management.
- The energy, environmental, transportation and warranty units will be overseen by executive vice-president Dan Conway. Conway will also act as special advisor for construction and the general casualty lines. All of Starr’s energy lines are consolidated under the leadership of vice-president Carmella Capitano.
- Kevin McCracken has been promoted to senior vice-president. In his new role, McCracken will continue to manage the Defense Base Act unit while gaining responsibilities for risk management, commercial general casualty, excess casualty, and the upcoming mergers & acquisitions profit center – which itself will be led by vice-president Nina Huffman.
- Primary and excess construction lines are consolidating; senior vice-president Andy Robinson has been tapped to lead the merged unit.
- Senior vice-president Rob Cruz will maintain leadership of distribution, field operations unit, but will also assume management of the small business line.
“This new structure will allow for greater synergies within and among the various business units to enable Starr Companies to provide the best coverage and service solutions to our clients,” commented Starr Companies president and CEO Steve Blakey.
