AmTrust E&S Insurance Services is expanding its offerings with the launch of an excess casualty underwriting division.
To lead the Los Angeles-based new business unit, AmTrust E&S has hired Jeff Lynn, who brings 15 years of experience in the excess casualty business.
According to David Lewis, president, AmTrust E&S Insurance Services, the launch comes as the market continues to see disruption from redeployment of limits, reduction in capacity and price increases.
The new business unit will write excess liability, both supported and unsupported in all 50 states, offering limits up to $25 million to small and medium-sized U.S. companies spanning a broad range of industries including manufacturing, contracting, habitational, hospitality, commercial real estate owners and operators, retail stores and wholesale distributors.
Lynn joins AmTrust from Everest Reinsurance, Los Angeles, where he served as vice president, Excess Casualty manager. During his tenure at Everest, he was responsible for leading a team of underwriters in the company’s Western region with a focus on construction, agriculture, energy and general casualty business.
Prior to joining Everest, Lynn worked with Ironshore Insurance Services, Los Angeles, where he managed a territory and underwrote the construction, transportation, energy, public entity sectors and a specialty casualty business, utilizing filed and manuscript forms. Previously, Lynn has held positions at The Hartford, Swiss Reinsurance, AIG and Aon.
