A new brokerage firm, StoneHill Reinsurance Partners, LLC, has been formed by Dan Koshiol, a 15-year veteran of the reinsurance brokerage business.
Koshiol, who is president and chief executive officer of the new firm, has said that he will bring a combination of youth, energy and independence to the firm.
"We see a marketplace need for a broker who will solely invest time and resources on their clients," Koshiol said.
"As brokers consolidate and look for additional revenue growth, some clients are being asked to purchase, at an added cost, products and services which historically have been included in the brokerage relationship. "Insurers need their brokers to be business partners offering objective advice, with the independence and drive to bring forward the right resources at the right time."
Koshiol's past employers include Guy Carpenter & Co. LLC, John B. Collins and Associates, Inc., and E.W. Blanch Company. He is joined in the new venture by Lindsay Ginter, senior vice president, who also held positions at Collins and E.W. Blanch and, most recently, managed a reinsurance captive for Wells Fargo and Company.
