McGowan Allied Specialty Insurance (MASI), the premier provider of commercial insurance products to the amusement industry, has announced the hiring of Joe K. Boyd as an Underwriting Manager.
In his new role with MASI, Boyd will be responsible for managing a team of underwriters within industry verticals in their underwriting practice and negotiating and placing both facultative and treaty reinsurance for the group’s insurance portfolio. He will also be charged with regulatory compliance and filings, reporting to Steve Del Vecchio, Director of Underwriting.
Boyd has over 20 years’ experience in the commercial insurance space, including time spent in claims, underwriting, loss prevention, marketing, compliance, and agency relations. The last ten years of his career were spent at the United Church Insurance Association in roles of increasing responsibilities, most recently as Director of Underwriting.
