Palomar Holdings has named Jon Christianson, its current chief underwriting officer, its new president effective on April 1, 2022, as Heath Fisher steps down from the role.

Robert Beyerle, Palomar’s current senior vice president of inland marine, will succeed Christianson as CUO.

Christianson joined the company in 2013 as chief operating officer and has served as CUO since August of 2020.

Before joining Palomar, Christianson served as a vice president at Holborn Corporation from April 2010 to December 2013.

The executive began his career in the insurance industry in 2002, when he joined Collins as a reinsurance broker.

Beyerle has served as Palomar’s inland marine SVP since January 2019.

Prior to joining the Californian carrier, Beyerle worked for 16 years at Great American Insurance Company, most recently as a divisional SVP in their property & inland marine unit.

The executive also worked for three years as a commercial insurance producer at Acordia Southeast.

Commenting on the appointments, Mac Armstrong, Palomar’s chairman and CEO, said: “I am pleased to report that Jon Christianson, our current chief underwriting officer, will step into Heath’s role as president in the second quarter of 2022.”

“Jon was the third employee at Palomar and like Heath he has been instrumental to our success,” he continued.

The executive went on to say that “I am also pleased to report that Robert Beyerle, our senior vice president of inland marine, will become our chief underwriting officer,” adding that “Robert has an incredible underwriting background and is the architect of our highly successful inland marine department.”

In May, Palomar’s chief operating officer, Britt Morries, resigned to pursue other opportunities, and Christianson together with chief financial officer Chris Uchida assumed Morries’s responsibilities in July.
