Amwins taps Ali as EVP product development, capacity
Wholesale broker Amwins has selected Munawar Ali to the new position of executive vice president of product development and capacity.
Ali will be responsible for overseeing the growth of Amwins' exclusive product development and incubation programs, building strategic capacity and driving underwriting performance metrics across the firm, the broker said.
“We've been churning out new products for a long time and leveraging our buying power to proactively build our strategic capacity portfolio,” CEO Scott Purviance said.
“With Munawar's leadership, we will continue honing these efforts and augmenting the creative mindsets of our brokers, clients and colleagues as we pursue our 150-year vision of helping our partners win.”
In addition to managing Amwins' product development and strategic capacity programs, Ali will further develop best practices around the underwriting performance metrics of the company's $4.6bn+ delegated authority business, which includes continued investments in actuarial capabilities, portfolio management and underwriting oversight.
He previously led Amwins Specialty Casualty Solutions, a full-service MGA specializing in niche workers' compensation, casualty and professional liability products that writes in excess of $1bn premium annually.
The appointment marks the people move for the broker. Amwins also recently hired Larry Goanos as an executive vice president in its financial lines practice.
