Cincinnati’s Core Specialty Makes Key Appointments in Property Division

January 6, 2021

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Core Specialty Insurance Holdings Inc. has filled several key roles within its Property Division, led by Alison Oliphant.

The company had previously announced its plans to launch this division ahead of the start of the 2021 renewal cycle. David Phillips and Christopher Muller have joined Core Specialty as senior vice presidents of Property Underwriting. Additionally, Laurence Bunin and Adam Tyburski have joined as co-heads of Personal Lines Fronted Programs.

Phillips was most recently E&S Property head for Pioneer Underwriting where he was responsible for building underwriting strategy, product, and execution. Prior to that he helped build Maxum Specialty E&S Property following his time with Arch Specialty, Wellington Underwriting, and J. Linneman & Company.

Muller joined Core Specialty from the property E&S division of Axis where he was the Southeast Unit Manager responsible for a team of underwriters. Prior to Axis, he spent time with Lexington, Ironshore and Montpelier Re.

Bunin most recently was an original founding executive of Spinnaker Insurance Co. in 2015. As the senior vice president, he was responsible for developing and underwriting multiple-party fronted insurance deals, and was responsible for deal economics and P&L. These efforts resulted in the ultimate sale of Spinnaker in August 2020.

Tyburski, also a co-founder of Spinnaker, served as the chief underwriting officer. Tyburski strategically steered growth for both new and renewal business, while actively underwriting each program to manage balance sheet exposure, resulting in an industry coveted “A-” rating from AM Best.

Core Specialty offers a diversified range of property and casualty insurance products for small to mid-sized businesses. Core Specialty is an insurance holding company operating through StarStone Specialty Insurance Co., a U.S. excess and surplus lines insurer, and StarStone National Insurance Co., a U.S. admitted markets insurer.
