Former Maxum Specialty executive joins Everest Re


Bermuda-based Everest Re Group has announced that Darwin Lucas has joined Everest Reinsurance Company as vice president and head of US casualty programmes for all general casualty and professional liability lines of coverage within the facultative reinsurance division. 

According to the company, his initial focus will be on managing the division’s rapidly growing programme portfolio, and developing broader relationships with its reinsurance trading partners.

Most recently, Lucas was senior vice president of the programmes division at Maxum Specialty Insurance Group, which was recently acquired by The Hartford. Prior to that, he was president of two separate national wholesale brokerage firms that offered programmes, underwriting and brokerage services.

With over 30 years in the insurance industry, including both broker and carrier programs management experience, Lucas is a strong addition to the Everest organisation and an instrumental part of the company’s long-term domestic strategies.

"Darwin's senior-level experience and knowledge of programs fits well with our desire for deep product line expertise that we demand for our clients," said Dennis Alba, senior vice president casualty.  

"Darwin's entrepreneurial spirit and deep roots in the program marketplace is very exciting for me and our team," added Laura Hunt, vice president and head of domestic casualty and professional facultative.
