Global specialty insurance distributor Amwins has announced the appointment of Andrew McKay as president of Amwins Specialty Casualty Solutions (ASCS), part of Amwins Underwriting.
In his new role, McKay will head one of the largest subscription operating companies within Amwins. ASCS comprises more than 20 programs that focus on niche markets, including public entities, PEOs, transportation, healthcare, and professional lines.

Prior to joining Amwins in 2020, McKay held underwriting roles at Markel and Great American.
As president of ASCS, McKay will lead a team of 80 employees who provide clients with comprehensive services including brokerage, underwriting, claims management, actuarial analysis, reinsurance, loss control and auditing.
McKay succeeds Munawar Ali, who has led ASCS since its inception in 2011. Ali has moved into a new company-level role focused on product development for Amwins, the company said.
“Andrew is a proven difference-making leader, bringing a wealth of industry-recognized experience and knowledge and will continue to drive the evolution of our subscription business,” said Ali. “He thinks differently about the program industry, from how he positively differentiates ASCS from its competitive peers to how he strategically builds sustainable capacity for programs through diverse panels, strong underwriting performance, and great analytics to stay on top of things. front of the market”.
