Insurance brokerage firm, IMA Inc., has hired veteran underwriting professional Conrad Maier as vice president in the company’s Houston-based energy practice.
Maier is the first dedicated producer in Houston, marking the next stage of IMA’s aggressive expansion plan in the nation’s energy capital. Bringing more than 20 years of experience in the energy risk sector to the role, he is among five highly respected insurance brokers that IMA has recruited since opening the Houston office in October 2020.
A Canadian native turned proud Texan, Maier has spent the entirety of his long career in the oil and gas sector. In the last decade, he held Houston-based senior leadership roles managing risk and underwriting for upstream energy companies. Prior to his time in Houston, Maier worked internationally, serving as vice president and senior offshore energy underwriter for Swiss Re Group based in Singapore, and as an offshore energy adjuster for Steege Kingston in Singapore and Matthew Daniels in London and throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. His experience growing global books of business has established him as a leader within the global upstream energy insurance sector.
IMA is growing its energy practice nationwide through talent recruitment and acquisition. Houston is joined by prominent energy groups in Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Wichita and Pittsburgh, following the company’s acquisition of Kittanning, Pennsylvania-based ESS NexTier Insurance Group in 2020.
The Houston practice, with about a dozen staff and counting, joins IMA’s nearly 900 associates working across North America with offices in Colorado, Kansas, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Texas.
