SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 15, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- EPIC (Edgewood Partners Insurance Center), a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, announced today that Timothy C. (Tim) Woodhull has joined the firm as a principal. Woodhull brings 35 years of diverse insurance industry experience and leadership in corporate insurance brokerage, insurance carrier operations, business development, client service, and risk management and insurance program design and management.
Woodhull has in-depth experience in delivering client services and brokerage expertise to middle market and national accounts. He has been involved as broker and senior client executive on some of the largest and most complex casualty insurance programs in the country, specializing in the Real Estate Industry, as well as Construction, Private Equity and Biotechnology.
Woodhull will focus on growing EPIC's business in these sectors as a part of the EPIC Risk Solutions team based in Stamford, Conn. He will divide his time between EPIC's Stamford and New York offices and report to Steve Levene, EPIC Risk Solutions Managing Principal.
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 completed five strategic acquisitions/purchases, adding nearly 300 employees in 10 new locations across the country and nearly doubling revenues from roughly $80 million to run rate revenues of almost $160 million.
Woodhull's broad insurance industry experience includes positions on the broker, carrier and buyer side. Prior to joining EPIC, Woodhull served as managing director at broker Beecher Carlson in New York. He was previously a Managing Director at USI New York and the Managing Partner of Northern Light Holdings (a Real Estate Investment Fund investing in distressed real estate), where he developed a Real Estate Insurance facility to insure investment properties nationwide.
Woodhull also held senior production and account management positions at brokers Palmer & Cay, Willis Corroon and Johnson & Higgins.
"Tim has been an innovator, leader and top producer his entire career," said Steve Levene. "His beliefs, principles and ability are extremely well aligned with EPIC's core values of client service excellence and unwavering client advocacy. We are excited to have him join our growing operations in the North East."
Woodhull attended Boston University, where he earned a Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS) Degree in Economics. Professionally, he has been a frequent speaker at construction and real estate conferences across the country.
"I've worked with some excellent organizations over the years, but none has offered the personal growth opportunities, no barriers client service philosophy and structure, and the 'people first' culture of EPIC," stated Woodhull. "I'm very excited to join the EPIC Risk Solutions team and look forward to contributing to our national expansion initiatives."
