H.W. Kaufman Group, a global network of insurance companies headquartered in Farmington Hills, announced the promotion of Jodie Kaufman Davis to executive vice president as well as chief strategy officer of Atain Insurance Cos.
She previously served as senior vice president of H.W. Kaufman group and managing director of Burns & Wilcox Canada. She will maintain the role with Burns & Wilcox Canada while taking on additional responsibility.
“I look forward to expanding my leadership role and taking on new challenges within our H.W. Kaufman Group companies,” says Kaufman Davis. “When I took on managing Burns & Wilcox Canada, we found our efforts for driving business and talent performance flourished, and we want to cultivate that same result into Atain Insurance Companies, RB Jones and across all Kaufman Companies globally.”
For Atain, the company’s A rated insurance carrier, she will work closely with the leadership team to identify emerging markets — such as energy and cannabis — where it can successfully deploy capacity and elevate its business.
Under her leadership, the Burns & Wilcox Canada team has consistently delivered record-breaking growth and results over the past six years – a testament to her impact on the business’ success and reputation in the market.
“It gives me great pride to see Jodie expanding the scope of her roles throughout the H.W. Kaufman Group companies,” says Alan Jay Kaufman, chairman, president, and CEO of H.W. Kaufman Group.
“Jodie continues to influence positive business results, which have yielded strong financial performance year-over-year. I am confident in Jodie’s leadership and ability to take our companies to greater heights, further driving the success of our privately held family business.”
