Everest Insurance has announced the appointment of Vahan Paretchan as Vice President and East Region Leader for its risk management casualty division.
The division is primarily concerned with providing primary casualty solutions to customers in the large account marketplace.
Vahan will oversee a team of underwriters operating in various US offices across the East Coast.
He joined Everest in 2017 within its commercial casualty unit, and was based out of Los Angeles.
Prior to that, Vahan had built his insurance career on the broker and carrier sides of the industry in both the Philadelphia and LA areas.
He will now be based out of Everest’s Philadelphia office, reporting to Christopher McKeon, Senior Vice President and Head of Risk Management & Commercial Casualty.
“With the rich pool of talent that Everest enjoys, we are very excited to recognize Vahan’s contributions, which have been instrumental to our growth in the primary casualty space, and we look forward to seeing all that he accomplishes with these expanded responsibilities,” said McKeon.
“The large account space is a core focus for Everest, and Vahan will play an important role as we continue to bring unique services and solutions to this segment of the market.”
