EWI Re CEO and past Vermont Captive Insurance Association (VCIA) chair Steve McElhiney will present on the Internet of Things (IoT) in "Innovative Spotlight: Using Technology to Mitigate Risk" at the 32nd Annual Captive Insurance Conference, hosted by the VCIA. Mr. McElhiney's presentation begins at 11 a.m. on August 10.

"I will bring to life how the Internet of Things is transforming industrial manufacturing and the potential risk and underwriting advancements this will bring, in addition to the unique risk model of my organization," said Mr. McElhiney.

For the 13th year in a row, Mr. McElhiney and his EWI Re colleagues are looking forward to seeing you at the presentation and encourage you to stop by their exhibit booth (# 6). Engage with senior reinsurance broker Aaron Ball and associate reinsurance broker Tanya Wu to discuss EWI Re and probe Mr. McElhiney and his team in more depth about the IoT, captives, treaty reinsurance, risk management, and how to improve the economics of existing captives through enhanced reinsurance arrangements. 

Mr. McElhiney and his colleagues also have an impressive array of thought leader articles and thought leader videos in the library.
