Curi, a North Carolina based mutual insurance company owned by physicians, has announced the appointment of Sean Farrelly as its new Senior Vice President (SVP) of Underwriting.
Farrelly joins Curi, which recently rebranded from Medical Mutual, from PartnerRe, where he served as portfolio manager for U.S medical reinsurance.
While at PartnerRe, he also handled a diverse portfolio of casualty reinsurance business as a member of the broader U.S casualty team. Prior to this, he held senior underwriting roles at Odyssey.
In his new role, Farrelly will lead Curi’s underwriting operations across the U.S, with a focus on developing the company’s offerings in medical professional liability insurance, alternative risk, and other solutions.
“Sean’s arrival is the latest affirmation of our commitment to innovating in the medical professional liability space—particularly as we continue to grow and evolve our alternative risk offering to meet the needs of today’s physicians and medical practices,” said Jason Sandner, Curi’s Chief Financial Officer.
“With his macro-level view of the market as a whole, Sean will bring broad thinking to our underwriting approach and initiatives,” he added.
Farrelly also commented: “I have followed Curi’s growth and mission-driven work as a reinsurance partner for many years and am honored to now be part of this team.
“The dynamics of today’s medical professional liability space will require much thoughtful attention in the years to come, and I look forward to helping the Curi team develop the best offerings and solutions for physicians and practice leaders, while maintaining the integrity of our underwriting approach.”
