Energi appoints CUO to support Vermont captive

Insurance programme provider Energi has appointed Michael Windstein as chief underwriting officer.

In this role, Windstein will be supporting the underwriting operations of Energi's recently introduced Vermont-domiciled captive, eCaptiv, which offers programmes for the energy and transportation industries.

The PC1-IC programme is geared towards energy companies within fuel distribution, energy transportation, energy construction, renewable energy, agricultural cooperative, and utilities who have $250,000 or greater in primary casualty premiums. eCaptiv’s PC2-IC programme is for energy companies in the same space as PC1-IC, but whose primary casualty premiums are less than $250,000.

Windstein previously served as assistant vice president for the mid-atlantic at Energi, where he managed the underwriting portfolio for the region.

Prior to Energi, he served as assistant vice president and underwriting manager at Victor O Schinnerer and was an underwriter for the Global Energy Middle Market (GEMM) program at AIG specialising in the oil and gas industry.
