Holborn Hires Strauss as Senior VP in New York

In this role, Strauss will be responsible for spearheading Holborn’s nationwide new business development efforts for the residual markets, working closely with the firm’s brokers and its analytics team to develop customized solutions for this market segment.

In addition, during his tenure, Strauss worked across a number of product lines, in various pricing and strategic capacities. Prior to Allstate, he served in the actuarial department at State Farm Insurance.

Holborn is a privately held independent reinsurance brokerage firm established in 1920. Through the adoption of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 1998, Holborn became exclusively owned by its employees.
