PURE Insurance appoints Chief Growth Officer


The PURE Group of Insurance Companies (the PURE Group), which includes Privilege Underwriters Reciprocal Exchange (PURE), a policyholder-owned property and casualty insurer designed for high net worth individuals and families, has appointed Jerry Hourihan as Senior Vice President, Chief Growth Officer.

Hourihan will be responsible for strategies to accelerate the growth of the PURE membership by strengthening the relationships with PURE’s independent broker channel and improving sales and marketing effectiveness throughout the organisation.  

“We know that our potential for future growth here at PURE is extraordinary,” says Mark Galante, President of Field Operations. “Jerry has earned a tremendous reputation, especially among the high net worth brokerage community. We believe he will be a wonderful addition to our culture and have a great impact on our profitable growth.” 

With more than 30 years’ experience in the high net worth insurance niche, Hourihan joins from AIG where most recently he served as President of the Private Client Group for the US and Canada, a position he held since 2014. Prior to joining AIG, Jerry worked at Chubb where he began his career and went on to hold a number of managerial roles in both the US and Europe.  

“In my short time here, I have witnessed the strong sense of purpose that guides the culture of PURE,” adds Hourihan. “I am thrilled to join PURE and to play a role in the next phase of growth for this great company.”

Hourihan, who will be based in PURE’s White Plains, NY headquarters, holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Wesleyan University.
