IFG Companies announced that its Board of Directors has approved the promotion of Christopher M. Lewis to group president. Lewis is based in IFG’s Hartford, Connecticut, office.
Lewis has been serving as interim president for the past two months after then-president Lou Levinson left the company to pursue other endeavors.
Since joining IFG in February 2014, Lewis has served as IFG’s chief risk officer, where he was responsible for developing and overseeing IFG’s risk management policies to ensure that IFG’s insurance business, operational and financial risks were appropriately monitored and controlled. In that capacity, Lewis also led and managed IFG’s ceded reinsurance programs. In January 2015, he was named as executive vice president.
As president, Lewis will remain involved in the oversight of IFG’s enterprise risk management and its ceded reinsurance programs.
Lewis joined IFG from The Hartford, where he was senior vice president and enterprise chief insurance risk officer. There, among other things, he quantified and helped manage enterprise risk, managed the ceded reinsurance portfolio and developed emerging risk management processes for The Hartford. He also oversaw the development of new economic capital models, assisted in state and regulatory public policy matters and supported the various business segments.
Founded in 1985, IFG provides property/casualty insurance on both the non-admitted and admitted basis. IFG has two principal divisions: the IFG Bind Division and the IFG Brokerage Division.
