Specialty insurance carrier Core Specialty Insurance Holdings has announced the appointment of William R. Fischer to lead its newly formed Agriculture Reinsurance Division.
Fischer joines from AIG Reinsurance, where he served as Senior Vice President of Agriculture.
In total, he has 25 years of experience in the crop reinsurance business.
“Bill has a wealth of experience working in senior roles and is ideally qualified to lead our entry into the Agriculture reinsurance business,” Jeff Consolino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Core Specialty.
“Many of us at Core Specialty have worked with Bill previously and we admire his expertise, his client focus, and his efficient operating model,” Consolino continued.
“The North American crop insurance market is a large and profitable niche which requires scale to succeed. We believe that operating as a reinsurer in this market is the best path for Core Specialty to build a profitable business which will complement our other specialty insurance operations.”
