NCCIA appoints chairman

Martin Eveleigh has been elected chairman of the North Carolina Captive Insurance Association (NCCIA).

Eveleigh, who is president of Atlas Insurance Management, has been a member of the NCCIA board of directors since 2013 and served as chairman of the Annual Conference Committee in 2014.

He began his career as a broker in the Lloyd’s of London market in 1983. As executive director of the

international reinsurance division of Willis, he negotiated and placed the largest marine excess of loss programme in the world.

“I am honoured to be elected to lead the NCCIA Board as its chairman,” said Eveleigh. “The past year and a half have been groundbreaking for captives in North Carolina, and 2015 holds much promise for more progress. I look forward to working with my fellow board members to help support North Carolina captives and the expansion of the North Carolina captive programme.”

Lane Brown was re-elected as vice chairman and Jesse Coyle was elected as secretary/treasurer of the trade association.

Additionally, two new members were elected to the board of directors: Jeremy Colombik and Dan Reppert.

“Martin Eveleigh is one of the best known individuals in the captive insurance community,” said NCCIA president and chief executive officer Thomas Adams. “His election provides not only continuity but the strong leadership skills that will be necessary to continue North Carolina’s rise to becoming one of the top domiciles for captive insurance companies.”

Alex Webb, the outgoing NCCIA chairman, said: “I am pleased with the selection of officers to lead NCCIA in 2015. The addition of Dan Reppert and Jeremy Colombik further strengthens our ability to provide top-level education and advocacy for captive insurance companies and their staffs in North Carolina.”
