Ryan Specialty Group promotes D'Onofrio to president/CEO of WKFC

Ryan Specialty Group L.L.C. said Monday that Dawn D’Onofrio has been promoted to president and CEO of WKFC Underwriting Managers and CorRisk Solutions. 

Ms. D’Onofrio, one of Business Insurance’s 2016 Women to Watch, was previously chief underwriting officer for both entities. Based in Melville, New York, she replaces Michael Sillat, who resigned from WKFC last month.

As CUO, Ms. D’Onofrio was instrumental in program development and producing profitable underwriting results to capacity providers, Chicago-based Ryan Specialty Group said in a statement. Ms. D’Onofrio has also held such positions as a wholesale broker, underwriting manager and program manager for two national wholesale brokerages.

“Dawn’s underwriting leadership has been the catalyst for ongoing program development and increased capital support,” Miles Wuller, COO of RSGUM, said in a statement. “She is widely respected in the industry for her commitment to both employees and business partners. We are pleased to see Dawn assume the role of CEO and President of WKFC and CorRisk.”
