Antoniou Recognized for His Contributions to the Growth of the ICW Re Business Unit
CHICAGO (June 16, 2023) – Nick Antoniou, an executive reinsurance underwriter for ICW Group Insurance Companies, a leading group of property and casualty carriers, has received the 2023 Business Insurance Break Out Award for his contributions to the growth and development of ICW Re.
Recognized at an awards celebration event for Midwest honorees in Chicago on June 15, Antoniou is among a group of 40 individuals that, according to Business Insurance, represent some of the most talented leaders emerging in the insurance industry. Antoniou has been a key contributor in helping ICW Group expand its Assumed Reinsurance operation, which the company launched less than five years ago. ICW Re has experienced rapid growth and now represents a significant segment of ICW Group’s total portfolio.
“Nick’s drive, dedication, and extensive skill set have helped turn what was essentially a new business venture into a core pillar of ICW Group’s business,” said Mirek Wieczorek, Head of Reinsurance for ICW Group. “His knowledge and experience, coupled with his true entrepreneurial spirit, exemplify what it means to be a break out professional.”
Each year a team from Business Insurance selects the Break Out Award winners from nominations that are open to professionals working in the commercial insurance and risk management sector who have no more than 15 years’ experience in the industry.
“I’m honored to be recognized for my work and to be a part of such a stellar group of insurance professionals,” said Antoniou. “It’s been an exciting journey working with an amazing team and leaders to help build ICW Group’s assumed reinsurance business and be a part of ICW Group’s growth as a multi-line carrier.”
Antoniou has been a part of the ICW Re team since 2021 and he has been involved in all facets of the business. To see Antoniou’s award profile and learn more about the Break Out Award, visit Business Insurance.
