COLUMBUS, Ohio – MILAN, Italy – N2G Worldwide Insurance Services, LLC has tapped Kevin M. Strong as its new Chief Executive Officer, the company announced today. The former Head of Multinational Business of The Hartford replaces retiring N2G CEO Bill Skapof, who led the company since its foundation in 2020.  

"I am excited to join such a talented team and further build N2G's brand as the preeminent provider of client-focused global program solutions," says Strong.  

Mr. Strong assumes the N2G helm with more than 20 years of industry experience across top-tier global insurer and broker organizations and has led multiple high-performing teams around the world. Most recently, he served as Head of Multinational at The Hartford, leading US-produced and incoming global program teams as well as The Hartford's Global Insurer Network and Canada Branch operations. Prior to his role at The Hartford, Kevin served as Worldwide Director of Global Programs and Network Services at XL Catlin, leading teams in the US, Mexico, UK, Austria, India, Hong Kong and China.

“Kevin brings a successful track record of growing multinational businesses and shares Nationwide and Generali’s commitment to the market,” says Russ Johnston, president of Standard Commercial, E&S and Specialty at Nationwide. “I’m confident that Kevin’s entrepreneurial spirit and market knowledge will help take this joint venture to the next level.”  

N2G was formed as part of an innovative joint venture with Generali, one of the largest global insurance and asset management providers - through its P&C unit Generali Global Corporate & Commercial (GC&C), and insurance and financial services giant Nationwide. N2G provides multinational insurance solutions, seamless services, and global capabilities for international commercial clients.  

The company created a first-of-its-kind underwriting platform which offers a single multi-option quote across all business lines through modern, tightly integrated systems. N2G’s platform recently won the 2023 Celent Insurance Award for Emerging and Digital Technologies.  

“I am pleased to welcome Kevin as the new CEO of N2G, and I am confident that he will be able to further enhance and expand N2G’s operations," said Christian Kanu, CEO of Generali Global Corporate & Commercial. "Thanks to his extensive international experience in the insurance industry, Kevin will add value to our strategy of providing multinational solutions to international commercial clients as well as protect their business across the globe.
