As part of our strategy to grow our business in Florida, we are excited to announce that in addition to our office in Tampa, we have opened an office in Satellite Beach which will be led by Jeff McNatt. Jeff has been with our firm since 2007 when he joined AmWINS to run our Birmingham, AL brokerage office.
"We believe that by increasing our local presence in Florida, we will build our brand in this very important state in the E&S industry,” said James Drinkwater, President of AmWINS Brokerage. “We are delighted that Jeff has agreed to help us build our platform. With Jeff's energy, commitment, and proven track record of developing talent and expertise, our clients will benefit a great deal from this expansion.”
In addition, we are pleased to announce that Brian Henderson, formerly of Peachtree Special Risk Brokers, has joined our firm and will be a part of the Satellite Beach team and will be opening an office in Boca Raton.
"Brian's strong relationships with retail clients and carrier partners will help solidify our position in the Florida marketplace," said McNatt. "His experience and fresh perspective will be a great addition to our team."
Alison Oliphant will now lead our Birmingham office and she will focus on continuing to grow the branch through adding teams that draw upon the diverse capabilities of our firm.
