Torus Appoints Catherine Miller as US Head of E&S General Property
9th November 2010
Torus, the global specialty insurer, has appointed Catherine Miller to the newly created role of US Head of E&S General Property. Reporting to Steve Fomchenko, Global Head of General Property, Ms. Miller will manage general property business written via wholesale brokers throughout the US.
Based in Jersey City, Ms. Miller joined Torus’ General Property team in early 2009 as Vice President, Senior Underwriter. Her insurance career spans over 15 years, having held various underwriting positions at several companies including Lexington, FM Global and XL Insurance.
“Wholesale brokers are the gatekeepers of a key business sector for Torus. Our analytical, solutions based approach can make a real difference in this area,” said Mr. Fomchenko.
“With Cathy now concentrating on our wholesaler relationships, our responsiveness to them will mirror the level of service we aim to provide to every insured. Brokers are the most powerful independent advocates of our approach. It makes sense to dedicate resource to them.”
