EPIC appoints O’Neil as president in management shakeup
EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants has made a number of organisational and structural changes that it hopes will better position it for future growth.
Tom O’Neil, who previously led the West and Northeast regions and integrated several large acquisitions, has been named EPIC’s president. In his new position he works directly with Steve Denton, chief executive officer at EPIC, to grow the business across its entire platform, from private client to large complex risk in both property and casualty and employee benefits.
EPIC has also restructured its business Northeast, Midwest/Southeast and West “super regions” in a move intended to improve consistency.
The Northeast region is led by Len Scioscia who serves as regional president. Scioscia joined the firm through the Prime Risk Partners acquisition in 2019 and was previously chief executive officer of Cook Maran.
Adam Meyerowitz leads the Midwest and Southeast region as president. He also joined via the Prime Risk Partners acquisition and was co-founder and president of that organisation.
KJ Wagner is regional president for the West region. He joined EPIC in 2018 to build up its presence in the Southwest region, and previously held senior leadership positions with Willis Towers Watson.
Meanwhile, Phil Moyles has been named as chief growth officer and president of financial services, responsible for driving innovation and organic growth throughout the company. He joined EPIC in 2018 through the acquisition of Vanbridge, where he continues as chief executive officer.
The national risk management and specialty practice is now led by Marc Kunney and Scott Davis as co-presidents. Jason Walker has been named senior vice president of national placement and carrier relationships, overseeing the placement of key accounts and developing new and existing relationships with strategic trading partners.
The national employee benefits practice remains under the supervision of Craig Hasday who continues as president, while Scott Schanen continues as president of national employer consulting.
Sapana Nanuwa joins Galway Insurance Holdings, EPIC’s parent company, as managing director of marketing, branding and communications, while Karman Chan joins Galway as chief financial officer. Frank Mammaro becomes chief financial officer of EPIC, reporting to Chan.
Kevin Grady has been appointed as EPIC’s chief diversity officer, in addition to his role as managing principal with EPIC IMPACT. John Gaffney has been named EPIC’s chief of staff, while Sawsan Nina Mahmud becomes director of administration.
