Swett & Crawford’s MGA Adds Two Lumber Underwriters in California

October 21, 2015

The Insurance Center for Building Materials has hired Rick Zorman and Phil McCown in Los Angeles.

Both Zorman and McCown are experienced lumber underwriters and will expand the firm’s capabilities for this market.

Zorman has experience in heavy manufacturing and mill operations. He joins ICBM from Pennsylvania Lumbermen’s Mutual, where he was a lead underwriter for its heavy manufacturing division. Zorman was previously a senior underwriter at Indiana Lumbermen’s Mutual and was an underwriter at Lumbermen’s Underwriting Alliance.

McCown has 27 years of underwriting experience. He spent 14 years at Fireman’s Fund and also worked at CNA Insurance, St. Paul Travelers and Chubb before joining Indiana Lumbermen’s Mutual in 2009. McCown was the ILM western region underwriter up until 2014, where he went on hiatus until joining ICBM.

ICBM is a Swett & Crawford managing general agency that deals in risks associated with lumber and secondary forest products companies, as well as building materials manufacturers and distributors.
