Ironshore Inc. last week announced the appointment of Tim McAuliffe as president of its Specialty Casualty unit. In this role, he will develop and manage Ironshore’s U.S. Specialty Casualty unit, which will focus on underwriting in the primary specialty casualty, buffer casualty and lead umbrella/excess business. McAuliffe is based in New York, and reports to Shaun Kelly, CEO of Ironshore’s U.S. operations.

Prior to joining Ironshore, McAuliffe spent 14 years in various senior leadership roles at AIG, including his most recent position as president of AIG Excess Casualty. He has extensive experience in the casualty field including lead umbrella/excess, catastrophic excess casualty and financial lines.

Joining McAuliffe on the U.S. Specialty Casualty team is Ben Beauvais, who has been appointed SVP of Specialty Casualty.

Prior to joining Ironshore, Beauvais spent 14 years at AIG’s Lexington Insurance Co., where he held a variety of management and casualty underwriting positions. He has experience in general casualty, transportation, and energy casualty. Most recently, he was VP and department head of Lexington’s AI Risk Specialists unit.

“We are excited to have both Tim and Ben join the Ironshore organization,” says Shaun Kelly. “Their diverse casualty underwriting background will be an asset to the Ironshore team as we expand our casualty product suite in the U.S."
