SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, announced today that risk management professional Mark Millard has joined the firm’s Stamford, Conn.-based EPIC Risk Solutions team as a Principal and Senior Producer. Millard will be based in EPIC’s Morristown, N.J. office and report to Steve Levene, Managing Principal of EPIC Risk Solutions.
Millard joins EPIC from EY where he was a senior manager in their Insurance Risk and Claims Practice based in New York. At EY, Millard led a team of risk professionals on countless Fortune 1000 and public entity insurance risk program assessments as well as numerous specialty projects for clients that included the development of an insurance purchasing framework; authoring a manual to negotiate insurance provisions in contracts; evaluating a commercial loan portfolios exposure to construction defect and warranty claims; and M&A due diligence. In addition, Millard developed and led EY’s initiative in cyber insurance risk advisory services.
Prior to joining EY in 2008, Millard spent the first half of his career developing his technical insurance risk management skill set while working as an insurance risk manager in corporations that included UBS and Lend Lease.
“Our Northeast leadership team is very excited to have someone of Mark’s caliber join our group,” said Steve Levene. “His background and experience, risk management expertise and leadership skills will materially contribute to EPIC Risk Solution’s future growth plans and the service excellence we deliver to our EPIC clients.”
As one of the nation’s fastest growing private insurance brokerage firms, EPIC has been on an aggressive national growth trajectory, successfully competing against the large, institutional brokers with an entrepreneurial, client-focused business model. Since The Carlyle Group became the firm’s major investment partner in December 2013, EPIC has added multiple locations and new team members across the country, growing revenues from roughly $80 million to estimated run rate revenues of almost $250 million – a 212% increase.
Millard is a graduate of Montclair State University in New Jersey, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree and holds the Associate in Risk Management designation. Professionally, he has written and spoken extensively on a wide range of risk management and insurance topics, including cyber risk mitigation techniques and private equity’s exposure to directors & officers liability claims.
