Ironshore Inc. announced that industry veteran Joseph L. Boren, president of U.S. Field Operations and a noted environmental risk expert, will retire as of year-end 2017.
Boren’s role as president of U.S. Field Operations will be assumed by David R. Frediani, currently president of Ironshore International and head of Regional Distribution.
Boren’s professional career of almost a half century’s experience was dedicated primarily to the environmental industry. He is credited with elevating industry awareness of environmental risks impacting virtually every commercial industry sector on a global basis.
Boren joined Ironshore in 2009 as chairman of Ironshore Environmental to launch the unit’s offering of products and services structured to address environmental incident and liability risks. In 2011, Boren was appointed president of U.S. Field Operations. He built out Ironshore’s nationwide distribution platform encompassing 18 offices in six geographic regions.
“Joe is a highly respected industry leader and his commitment to environmental issues and protective actions have made an indelible impression on how our industry responds to this precarious sector of the market,” stated Kevin H. Kelley, CEO.
Frediani will assume the role of president of U.S. Field Operations, Strategic Relations and Global Marketing. Frediani, who has served as president of Ironshore International since 2012, will now be responsible for overseeing marketing and distribution of all specialty lines to both retail and wholesale markets throughout Ironshore’s operational platform.
Frediani’s professional tenure prior to his Ironshore position included 30 years at Marsh & McLennan Companies, with primary international responsibilities focused on strategic oversight, client relationships, business development and marketing.
Frediani will be reporting to Shaun E. Kelly, who is president Ironshore Inc. and CEO of Ironshore’s U.S. Operations.
