Acrisure faucets firm veteran as head of world insurance coverage


“This organizational alignment is the next clear step in Arcisure’s journey to becoming a fintech financial services company,” said Greg Williams, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Acrisure. “This vision encompasses the success of our core insurance brokerage business and goes beyond that. In just eight years, we’ve grown Acrisure from $ 38 million to more than $ 2.3 billion in revenue, powered by an entrepreneurial mindset and a limitless perspective. Our chance today is different from any other. “

Williams said that since Acrisure took over the insurance practice of AI firm Tulco last year, Acrisure “has been implementing a transformative, technology-driven strategy” to enable greater customer focus and innovation across the company.

“This next role for Grahame accelerates his impact on the business, including leading our market relationships and providing technical support to our insurance portfolio,” said Williams.

Prior to his new role, Millwater was President of Acrisure International and Global Markets. He joined Acrisure, a global reinsurance broker, which he has headed since 2013, after acquiring Beach & Associates in 2018. Beach & Associates was renamed Acrisure Re late last year.

Prior to Beach & Associates, Millwater held various senior positions at Willis Group for 27 years, including CEO of Willis Re and President of the Willis Group.

Beach came to Acrisure because of the unique model and potential of what Greg and the team were building. The opportunity exceeded all of our expectations and I look forward to continuing to play a key role in growing such an exciting and unique business. “
