Ironshore has announced the retirement of industry veteran, Joseph Boren, chairman of Ironshore Environmental and president of US field operation as of the end of this year.
Current president of Ironshore International and Head of Regional Distribution, David Frediani will succeed Boren’s role as president of U.S. field operations, strategic relations and global marketing, reporting to Shaun Kelly, president of Ironshore, Inc. and CEO of the company’s U.S. operations.
Frediani, who has served as president of Ironshore International since 2012, will now be responsible for overseeing marketing and distribution of all specialty lines to both retail and wholesale markets throughout Ironshore’s operational platform.
Prior to joining Ironshore, Frediani’s professional tenure included thirty years at Marsh, with primary international responsibilities focused on strategic oversight, client relationships, business development and marketing.
Boren’s professional career of almost a half century’s experience was dedicated primarily to the environmental industry.
Boren is credited with elevating industry awareness of environmental risks impacting virtually every commercial industry sector on a global basis.
He joined Ironshore in 2009 as chairman of Ironshore Environmental to launch the unit’s offering of products and services structured to address environmental incident and liability risks.
In 2011 he was appointed as president of U.S. field operations, whereby he built out Ironshore’s nationwide distribution platform encompassing 18 offices in six geographic regions.
Boren will continue his active involvement in New York area not-for-profit organisations, serving as chairman of Riverkeeper, an environmental watchdog protecting the Hudson River, and as board member of the New York City all-stars project initiative, a national skills development program for inner-city teenagers and young adults.
CEO, Kevin Kelley said: “I have had the privilege of working directly with Joe for many years during our respective careers within the insurance industry.”
“Joe is a highly respected industry leader and his commitment to environmental issues and protective actions have made an indelible impression on how our industry responds to this precarious sector of the market.”
