BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Starr Insurance reorganizes casualty structure

Reprints

Starr Insurance Holdings Inc. will reorganize its casualty business, the company said Tuesday.

The financial lines and professional liability businesses will be consolidated under the leadership of Brian Inselberg, senior vice president, who will assume responsibilities for political risk and crisis management, New York-based Starr said in a statement.

The energy, environmental, transportation and warranty business will be overseen by Dan Conway, executive vice president, who will also act as special adviser for the construction and general casualty lines, the statement said. All energy lines will be consolidated under the leadership of Carmella Capitano, vice president.

Kevin McCracken, who has been promoted to senior vice president, will continue to manage Defense Base Act business and assume responsibility for risk management, commercial general casualty, excess casualty, and a soon-to-be-formed mergers and acquisitions profit center to be led by Nina Huffman, vice president, the statement said.

Primary and excess construction will be consolidated under the leadership of Andy Robinson, senior vice president.

Rob Cruz, senior vice president, will assume management of small business while maintaining leadership of distribution and field operations, the statement said.

No one is leaving the company due to the restructuring. Ms. Huffman will be based in Los Angeles, and all the other executives are based in New York, a Starr spokewoman said in an email.

“This new structure will allow for greater synergies within and among the various business units to enable Starr Companies to provide the best coverage and service solutions to our clients,” Steve Blakey, president and CEO, said in the statement.

The changes have come shortly after the appointment of Mr. Blakey as president and chief executive officer.
