Ironshore Environmental taps head for wholesale team

Ironshore Environmental has announced the appointment of Kelly Killimett to lead its newly established wholesale team. In her new role, Killimett will be responsible for developing and executing an integrated underwriting and sales strategy to serve wholesale brokerages in the United States. She will be based in Atlanta and will report to Toby Smith, president of Ironshore Environmental.

Killimett has more than 15 years of environmental underwriting experience with a focus on wholesale distribution. Prior to joining Ironshore Environmental, she held various leadership roles at Argo Group, most recently as head of the environmental business unit.

“Kelly’s appointment reflects our commitment to the wholesale distribution channel,” Smith said. “As demand for our environmental products continues to increase, we recognize the need to differentiate our underwriting teams and develop more customized solutions for our retail and wholesale distribution channels. Kelly’s deep experience and proven leadership will enable us to expand our wholesale offering in collaboration with our broker partners.”
