Surplus Lines Association of California Makes Executives Staff Moves

March 9, 2020

The Surplus Line Association of California announced on Monday that Pat McAuley, who had served most recently as the senior vice president for the education and compliance department, officially retired on Feb. 28 after more than 25 years with the association.

McAuley, who had previously led the SLA’s data analysis department, closed her career by spearheading the launch and implementation of the SLA’s new online learning center.

The SLA also recently made two new executive moves. David Kodama has taken on a newly created role as the SLA’s executive vice president, and JoAnn Del Gatto, the new vice president for the education and compliance department, steps into McAuley’s former job.

Kodama will oversee the education and compliance, financial analysis and digital communications departments. He previously worked for the American Property Casualty Insurers Association. His responsibilities there included the association’s policy development in surplus lines insurance. Previously, he was an actuarial manager and business operations director for CNA.

Del Gatto previously worked for 14 years at AIG, where she was chief compliance officer and oversaw global compliance functions. She also recently worked as a regulatory risk and compliance consultant.

The SLA operates as a self-governed private organization and it serves as the statutory surplus line advisory organization to the California Department of Insurance.
