GuideOne-owned MGU hires Navigators' Chines to lead energy business

Lisa Chines has been named head of energy at Career General Agency, a managing general underwriter (MGU) owned by the West Des Moines, Iowa-based GuideOne Mutual.

Chines will lead the energy insurance business and is tasked with establishing stronger ties to wholesale brokers. The executive had been an upstream energy underwriter at Navigators for the past 10 years and had been with Arch prior to that, focusing on offshore energy risks.

GuideOne launched Career General Agency in October last year, in partnership with insurance technology provider Whitespace. Its underwriting process it wholly digitized, and risks are written solely through Whitespace’s placement portal.

Adam Berger, senior vice president at CGA, said of Chines’ appointment: “With her expertise, we expect the CGA Energy Division to become a recognized leader in the energy space.”

Chines added: “Our underwriters and underwriting assistants are energetic, focused and knowledgeable professionals. I’m proud of the team we have put in place, and I look forward to a long-lasting relationship.”
