The Target Markets Program Administrators Association formally introduced Jeremy Hitzig as its new President, following Bill Kronenberg who steps down after completing his two-year term.
Mr. Hitzig is the CEO of The Distinguished Programs Group, a New York-based program administrator specializing in the real estate industry. He began his insurance career in 1995 as a principal at Capital Risk Strategies where he focused on emerging risk transfer tools including catastrophe bonds and other blended capital markets/insurance products. He joined Distinguished Programs in 1997 and held a number of executive positions before being named CEO in 2006. He has been a TMPAA Board Member since 2008. Distinguished Programs was a founding member of Target Markets and is a recipient of the Best Practices designation. Mr. Hitzig is a graduate of McGill University and received his MBA from Columbia Business School in New York.
He also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst and Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter designations. He has been a member of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) since 2006.
"I welcome the challenge to continue building the TMPAA which has become an important resource for Program Administrators, and for this industry segment in setting benchmarks for Best Practice standards," stated Jeremy Hitzig. "The next two years will see the implementation of additional supports for program business professionals, the most exciting of which will be Target University and our CPL (Certified Programs Leader) Designation. Our most important role, however, continues to be in expanding the opportunities for business development between the administrators, carriers and vendor members of the Association. I am fortunate to have a group of dedicated program business experts working with me to accomplish these important tasks, and would like to acknowledge the tremendous job Bill Kronenberg did moving the TMPAA forward over the past two years."
