Brunson Named President, CEO of Gulfstream and Catawba

Staff Writer | June 16, 2017

The Seibels Bruce Group, Inc. and Gulfstream Property & Casualty Insurance Company announce executive leadership changes with both companies. Nan D. Brunson has been appointed president and CEO of Gulfstream and its affiliates, as well as president and CEO of Catawba Insurance Company (Catawba).

Gulfstream is an affiliate and business process outsourcing client of Seibels, and Catawba is a wholly owned subsidiary of Seibels, putting Brunson in a position to lead both companies. Brunson currently serves as vice president of business development at Seibels and interim president and CEO of Gulfstream.

Seibels will immediately begin a search for Brunson’s replacement at Seibels as she moves away from her current role and direct involvement with business development and steps into the full-time leadership positions at Gulfstream and Catawba. As president and CEO of Catawba, Brunson will be responsible for preparing the currently inactive insurer for future business ventures.

“I am excited that Nan will be taking on the full-time role of president and CEO at both Gulfstream and Catawba,” says Rex W. Huggins, chairman and CEO of Seibels. “Nan has been a tremendous asset to Seibels and brings a unique skill set to both companies. We are confident that she will serve the interests of the policyholders while maintaining alignment with the shareholders’ approach to long-term, profitable and conservative growth.”

Brunson is an executive strategist with over 25 years of experience in the insurance and technology industries. While serving in the business development team at Seibels, Brunson established short and long-term marketing, sales and communications strategies that aligned with the company’s vision to provide best-in-class insurance services. Brunson also focused on expanding the company’s product and service offerings while providing ongoing support to clients.

“Working with the Seibels team and helping bring Rex Huggins’ vision of best-in-class services and world-class technology to fruition has been a rewarding experience,” says Brunson. “I’m looking forward to becoming fully established at Gulfstream, and am happy to continue to cultivate long-term strategies for both Seibels and Gulfstream.”
