Recently-launched specialty insurance carrier Core Specialty has made several key appointments within its property division, led by Alison Oliphant.
David Phillips and Christopher Muller join as Senior Vice Presidents of Property Underwriting.
Phillips was most recently E&S Property Head for Pioneer Underwriting and before that served at Maxum Specialty E&S Property.
Muller arrives from Axis where he was the Southeast Unit Manager responsible for a team of underwriters.
Additionally, Laurence Bunin and Adam Tyburski have joined as Co-Heads of Personal Lines Fronted Programs.
Tyburski was also a co-founder of Spinnaker Insurance Company, where he served as the Chief Underwriting Officer.
Commenting on the appointments, Oliphant said, “The additions of Dave, Chris, Laurence and Adam are keys to our success as we execute our well thought out strategy.
“Dave and Chris’s collective E&S underwriting experience will allow them to lead our underwriting team to be the E&S property market of choice for our broker partners. Laurence and Adam bring significant tenure and insight for our property fronting business.”
Jeff Consolino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Core Specialty added, “We announced our intention to build a market-leading property division under Alison’s leadership in August and I am very pleased that the Property Division will be active at the outset of the 2021 renewal cycle.
“By adding Adam and Laurence, we add two executives with hands-on experience starting up and building a successful property fronting business which will further contribute to our growth in 2021 and beyond.”
