Sompo brings ex-Catlin/Pioneer to build new environmental unit
Bermuda-based specialty re/insurer Sompo International Holdings has launched a new US insurance environmental unit to be led by senior vice president Jessica Huhn-Kenzik, who recently joined the company from Pioneer Underwriters.
Huhn-Kenzik has over 15 years of underwriting management experience. She previously served as part of the team that launched Catlin’s environmental unit and most recently led Pioneer Underwriters’ environmental liability business.

The new environmental unit will offer contractors professional and pollution liability coverage for environmental professionals and consultants, specialty and trade contractors, general contractors and construction managers.
Sparro said: “Our newly formed U.S. Insurance Environmental team complements our existing capabilities for clients, particularly those in the construction industry. We are thrilled to have Jessica on board to lead this effort in addition to our team of experienced underwriters. Jessica has extensive experience as a technical underwriter and practicing attorney who has focused her career on serving clients in this class of business.”
