Everest Re Group Ltd. said Tuesday that it has expanded its U.S. specialty insurance platform, Everest National Insurance Co. with the launch of an inland marine underwriting team.

According to Everest National, the inland marine underwriting unit will underwrite both individual risks as well as select inland marine programs.

Richmond, Virginia-based Mike Warfield will lead the Inland Marine underwriting team. Previously, Mr. Warfield oversaw the marketing, distribution and business development area for Everest National. Before that he was president of Colony Insurance Co., Everest National said in a statement.

“The inland marine offering is a natural extension of our in-force U.S. property insurance portfolio, and we remain equally excited about the potential for increased product alignment with our other new and existing casualty insurance segments,” Jonathan Zaffino, president of Everest National Insurance Co. said in the statement.
