AXIS Insurance, the specialty insurance business segment of AXIS Capital Holdings Limited, has announced the addition of three underwriters to its US Renewable Energy Team.
Kristopher Williams and Melissa Marsh have both joined the team as Renewable Energy Underwriters, while Kevin Motta has joined as an Assistant Underwriter.
All three will focus on underwriting renewable energy risk across wind energy, solar energy and battery storage.
Their work will include package policies that provide property, general liability and umbrella coverage that spans construction and operations of projects.
All three of the new hires are effective immediately and will report to Sam Walsh, Head of US Renewable Energy at AXIS Insurance.
Williams will be based in Kansas City, while Marsh will continue to be based in Chicago, and Motta will be based in New York.
“I’m pleased to welcome Kristopher, Melissa and Kevin to our team as we continue to grow our leadership in supporting both the developed and emerging segments of the U.S. renewable energy market,” said Walsh.
“The U.S. renewable energy market is experiencing exceptional growth, with considerable financial investment and project development underway. The addition of these three underwriters will enable us to further advance the expertise and service we deliver to our brokers in this fast-growing market.”
Most recently, Williams served as a Property Underwriter at Travelers, focused on US renewable energy projects.
Marsh, meanwhile, joins the AXIS US Renewable Energy team in an internal transfer from the Company’s North American Property Facilities unit, and Motta joins from Aspen, where he was an Environmental Liability Underwriter.
