Amwins, the specialist insurance and reinsurance broker, has appointed Mark Bernacki to the newly created position of chief underwriting officer (CUO).
As CUO, Bernacki will be responsible for overseeing the underwriting performance of the company’s $3+ billion delegated authority business, which will include continued investments in actuarial capabilities, claims, portfolio management, and underwriting oversight.
Additionally, he will continue to focus on building capacity and growing Amwins’ alternative risk capabilities, with a particular focus on Bermuda and London, two key growth areas for the firm.
Scott Purviance, chief executive officer of Amwins commented: “Mark is an exceptional individual who has served as an integral part of our leadership team.
“Focusing on underwriting integrity while driving value for our carrier partners and clients, Mark’s skills and experience will prove invaluable as the company grows and executes our 150-year vision.”
Bernacki added: “It has been a privilege to be part of the Amwins team for the past two years, and I look forward to growing our underwriting capabilities while continuing to innovate with new products.
“At Amwins, we fundamentally believe insurance is both a relationship and data-driven business; harnessing the best of these within our entrepreneurial culture will fuel success for our clients and capacity partners alike.”
