Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company has appointed Chris Sekine as president and CEO.

He succeeds Mike George, who will continue to work with Trisura Guarantee on a consulting basis.

Sekine has led Trisura Guarantee’s surety group since its inception. He has helped to set the company’s executive and strategic direction, and played a role in its Broker Strategic Initiative, reinsurance placement and overseeing underwriting decisions.

“I’ve known and worked with Chris for over 25 years and have valued his expertise, friendship and passion for the business,” George said Tuesday in a statement issued by Trisura. “He has been part of the Trisura family from the beginning, and I’m confident that under his leadership, Trisura will continue to deliver exceptional experiences and results, while building on our success story.”

George will continue to work with Trisura Guarantee on a consulting basis to facilitate the leadership transition, the company announced.

“Mike has been instrumental in the development of Trisura Guarantee from its inception in 2006 through its most successful year in 2018,” the company’s statement says. “He has built a strong team respected for their underwriting expertise, responsiveness and cultural values, while navigating the competitive specialty insurance market.

“We cannot thank Mike enough for his contributions to Trisura as a founder, a leader and a friend. We wish him every success in the future.”
