The moves continue for Warren Buffet’s newest insurance unit, as Berkshire Hathaway Specialty announces the appointment of Lori Spoon Rafkin as SVP, customer and broker engagement.

Buffett’s specialty unit has continued to make headlines for hiring executive away from top-tier insurers like AIG and CNA, and the hire of Spoon is no different — she most recently worked for Zurich Insurance in North America as broker relationship leader.

Prior to her role at Zurich, Spoon Rafkin was EVP and chief administrative officer, commercial finance division, at CIT Group. Before that, she spent the entirety of her career in the commercial insurance industry, holding numerous senior level positions at Marsh Inc., including managing director and chief of staff of Marsh’s New York operations, as well as sales and industry practice leader with Marsh's global services group in New York. She began her career as an international underwriter with Chubb Insurance and is a graduate of DePauw University.
