Pioneer appoints vice president for special risk division

Pioneer Underwriters, the underwriting group within Minova Insurance, has appointed Rolando Rodriguez as vice president of diversified financial services at Pioneer Special Risk (PSR) with immediate effect.

Rodriguez will be based in New York, and report directly to Brian Hickey, senior vice president of diversified financial services.

Rodriguez was most recently working for Herbert L. Jamison & Co. where he was the vice president of financial services, responsible for building and maintaining relationships with carrier markets for financial institutions, professional liability, cyber security, fidelity bonds, and other risks.

Prior to that, he worked for AIG, CNA and Marsh and McLennan, having started his career with Coface North America as a trade credit commercial underwriter.

"We are delighted to welcome Rolando to PSR," Hickey commented. "His product line experience and proven expertise will help us to continue to excel in delivering innovative underwriting solutions for the financial services industry.

"We have set high aspirations for this class and continue to grow the line of business while maintaining a high standard of service for our clients. The appointment of Rolando is further evidence of PSR’s continued success since the platform was launched on January 1, 2015."
