Due to an upcoming retirement, we are searching for an Underwriting Manager on behalf of West Wawanosh Mutual Insurance (WWMIC).   Reporting directly to the CEO, you will be a key member of the senior leadership team and will be an integral part of the strategy that will spearhead the growth and future success of organization.   Leading a team of seven underwriters, you will play a key role in implementing the underwriting strategy and related policies, procedures, processes.   Your collaborative work ethic will build the bench strength of your underwriting team and will actively engage with other Department Leaders fostering a cohesive and positive working environment.
