January 9, 2015

Effective Jan. 1, 2015, The Walker Group, an AmWINS Group company, has changed its name to AmWINS Brokerage of New York to expand AmWINS Group’s brand in New York state.

Located in Syracuse and Amherst, New York, The Walker Group was acquired by AmWINS Group in January 2014. The firm is a wholesale commercial lines broker and managing general agent (MGA). It specializes in primary and excess workers’ compensation, professional liability and other niche P&C lines. In addition, it serves as a group manager operating and managing several safety groups within the New York State Insurance Fund.

With this change, AmWINS Group now has three locations in New York state under the AmWINS Brokerage of New York name: New York City, Syracuse, and Amherst. (AmWINS Group has an existing AmWINS Brokerage of New York location in New York City.) Tony Sidoni, who served as president of The Walker Group and is now executive vice president of AmWINS Brokerage of New York, will continue to oversee operations for Syracuse and Amherst offices.

It serves retail insurance agents by providing property/casualty products, group insurance programs and administrative services. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, the company operates through more than 100 locations around the world and handles premium placements in excess of $10.2 billion annually through four divisions: Brokerage, Underwriting, Group Benefits and International.
