GMI Insurance, a leading managing general agency specializing in commercial transportation exposures, has named Angela Milks as its Underwriting Director. Milks has more than a decade of experience writing and evaluating transportation risks for National Interstate Insurance Company.
"We are fortunate to acquire the services of Angie Milks," said Karen Trudel, COO of GMI Insurance. "Her credentials in the transportation industry are a perfect fit for our specialized commercial auto programs. Her portfolio of experience for both carrier underwriting and specialized transportation group insurance make Angie a valuable asset to the GMI team.'
Milks worked in all aspects of transportation insurance while at National Interstate, from sales, marketing and underwriting, to leadership of new program design and implementation. In 2007, she was promoted to Assistant Product Manager for a $2 million dollar single parent captive for large trucking risks. She enhanced her underwriting skills in 2009 by taking on underwriting and marketing responsibility for three large transportation programs with gross annual premiums in excess of $30 million. In 2011, she was again promoted to head up a team of product managers and a book of $60 million of diverse lines including several outside her transportation core competencies.
Prior to her management experience at National Interstate, Milks assisted a Program Manager of a passenger transportation group captive program and worked as a junior underwriter for public transportation and trucking exposures.
"We welcome Angie to the GMI family as we prepare to grow our overall business in the coming year," said Mark Trudel, GMI's President. "She is a talented underwriter with a commercial transportation sweet spot."
