New President and CEO for NAMICO
NAMIC Insurance Company, an Indianapolis-based professional liability insurance company, today announced that its board of directors has unanimously elected Jennifer Hamilton as the company’s president and CEO. She had previously served as the vice president of claims for NAMICO.
“Jen’s broad experience in professional liability insurance and strong relationships with NAMICO policyholders and business partners make her the right person at the right time to lead the company into the future,” said Chuck Chamness, NAMICO board chair and head of the search committee. “Her strategic approach, combined with her management skills and vision for NAMICO, will bring great benefit to NAMIC insurance company stakeholders for years to come.”
Before joining NAMICO in 2016, Hamilton worked in professional liability insurance for more than 15 years, with seven years as a practicing coverage attorney. She previously worked in Wilson Elser’s New York office where she represented insurance companies in multimillion-dollar directors and officers coverage litigation. She then joined Chubb in its Jersey City office where she managed the litigation of hundreds of professional liability lawsuits prior to joining NAMICO.
“I am deeply honored to embark on this exciting new chapter with NAMICO, and I am grateful to the search committee members and the NAMICO board for their confidence in me to take the company to the next level,” Hamilton said. “Together with our outstanding staff and management team, I look forward to leading NAMICO toward continued success in our mission to provide exceptional service to members and policyholders.”
NAMIC Insurance Company was founded by the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies in 1987 to provide a strong and stable professional liability insurance market to NAMIC members and their agents. It is owned by the association and its members and maintains an “A” rating from AM Best.
