Insurance professional Kevin Bouchard has joined Fortegra, global specialty insurance subsidiary of holding company Tiptree, as Senior Vice President, Specialty.
Bouchard brings two decades of experience within the finance and property & casualty insurance industry to his new Florida-based role.
He joins the global specialty insurer from Victor US, where he most recently served as Senior Vice President and Underwriting Leader, Specialty P&C, a position he held for almost two years.
Prior to that, Bouchard spent over three years as Managing Director, MGA for Simply Business; and close to two years as Portfolio Underwriting Manager for Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance.
His longest tenure was with Liberty Mutual Insurance, where he served for over seven years after joining the company in 2009 as a Senior Business Consultant, Corporate Development Program.
He was then appointed Commercial Markets Underwriting Manager, followed Business Insurance Underwriting Manager, before being named Managing Director, Small Comercial, in 2016.
Through his career, Bouchard also held roles at BlackRock, BOX Holdings Group LLC, and Uganda Microfinance Limited.
Bouchard joins Fortegra at a time when the business is creating significant revenue growth for Tiptree.
In March, the holding company reported a substantial increase in revenues for 2022, to $1.4bn, thanks to growth in the insurance business, as well as increases in charter rates and a maritime operations sale, and increased revenues from its mortgage servicing portfolio.
Most recently, Tiptree’s first quarter of 2023 saw considerable increase in its revenues, which was also driven by Fortegra. Revenues increased by 17.5% to $381.6m.
