Truist Insurance Holding Inc. named the senior leadership of its commercial brokerage McGriff on Wednesday following the departure of former president and CEO Rick Ulmer.

Read Davis, president of McGriff’s Georgia region, will be CEO, McGriff Specialty and Middle Market, and Renee Keen, national personal lines and small business practice leader, will be CEO, McGriff Small Business and Personal.

“The appointments follow the company’s decision to divide the business’ leadership responsibilities between two operational groups to reflect the distinct client segments and unique growth opportunities that exist in the business,” Truist Insurance said in a statement.

Both executives will report to John Howard, chief insurance officer of Truist Financial Corp. and chairman and CEO of Truist Insurance.

In August, Mr. Ulmer joined Alliant Insurance Services Inc. as executive vice president and managing director, mergers and acquisitions within the brokerage’s Alliant Underwriting Solutions division.
