Everest Re Group subsidiary Everest Insurance has expanded its inland marine team with the hiring of Tom Warner, Timothy Janeway and Mike Lewis.

Warner joins Everest from London-based Beazley and has been appointed as Everest Insurance’s vice president of inland marine Southeast region. He will be based at the firm’s Atlanta office. At Beazley he was the focus group leader for their builder risk and inland marine division. Prior to that, he spent fourteen years with Allianz Global, most recently as director of inland marine with a specific focus on large construction accounts.

Janeway has been appointed senior underwriter, associate manager inland marine segment, based in Chicago. He joins Everest from CNA, where he was a senior inland marine underwriter responsible for the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states. Prior to that, he spent two years with Hub International as a business development manager for the Midwest.

Finally, Lewis has been appointed senior underwriter, manager of inland marine segment in the Southeast, based in the firm's Tampa office. He joins Everest from XL Catlin, where he was a senior inland marine underwriter. The company said that Lewis’s addition enhances its presence in the Southeast construction marketplace.

“We are excited to be able to add these talented technicians to our already strong bench of underwriting talent,” said Mike Warfield, head of inland marine. “Everest has built quite a footprint in the inland marine space and we look forward to continuing to grow the team to support the needs of our trading partners and insureds. We pride ourselves on providing superior capabilities and differentiated service backed by the financial strength of Everest.”
