INSUREtrust, a cyber insurance and risk management specialty broker within Starwind Specialty, announced the addition of Florence Levy as Executive Vice President. Levy brings a Fortune 500 client focus and experience in the complex and dynamic risk environment of Cyber and Commercial E&O insurance to the EVP role.
Prior to joining INSUREtrust, Levy was a Director of the Cyber Incident Management Group with another global broker where she helped clients address their most pressing cyber needs across the full lifecycle of a cyber incident, from preparation through response and recovery. She also previously served in senior cyber risk roles at three other global brokerages. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law.
A well-known leader in the cyber insurance industry, Levy was named a 2015 Woman to Watch by Business Insurance and a 2020 Cyber Power Broker by Risk & Insurance. She strives to develop a deep understanding of each client’s needs, ultimately enabling better cyber resilience, strategic risk identification and management, and customized insurance program design.
At INSUREtrust, Levy will expand the company’s enterprise and Fortune 500 cyber client focus while also overseeing the continued development of INSUREtrust’s Cyber Secure Platform (CSP) as well as Cyber Risk University, INSUREtrust’s cyber risk educational platform. Her experience and insight into cyber risk will help INSUREtrust build its distribution channels and expand its cyber risk capabilities. She will work out of Denver, Colorado.
“When you get the opportunity to hire someone you can learn from, you take it,” said Christiaan Durdaller, CEO of INSUREtrust. “Florence’s expertise and enterprise client focus over the past 23+ years will help us take our Cyber Secure Platform to new heights. Florence couldn’t be a better fit, and I am excited to have her alongside the rest of our leadership team as we position INSUREtrust to continue differentiating our clients for years to come.”
“I am thrilled to join the leadership team of a truly innovative organization and help drive their continued success. I look forward to building on the deep foundation and strong brand that INSUREtrust has established within the cyber insurance community,” said Levy. “INSUREtrust is an organization that puts people first, and that kind of culture has been the lifeblood of my career. I’m excited to grow and thrive as part of the INSUREtrust team.”
