Business Honors

Appalachian Underwriters is excited to announce that our Principal, Robert “Bob” Arowood, has been listed in Insurance Business America’s 2018 Hot 100 issue!

“In its fifth year, IBA’s Hot 100 list pulls together insurance professionals who stood above the crowd in the past 12 months… From a pool of hundreds of nominations, IBA narrowed the list to 100 professionals,”

For more than 20 years, Robert Arowood has served as president of Appalachian Underwriters (AUI); along with his brother, Bill Arowood, he is also a principal of the company, which has more than 400 employees across the country. As an active leader in all areas of AUI, Arowood has been able to create opportunities for growth with diversity in the marketplace. Thanks to additional carriers on its Xpress Contractors platform, service expansion to AUI’s agency portal, the addition of a high-net-worth division and an agency white-label program, AUI has become one of the nation’s leaders in wholesale insurance.

Recently AUI was named a Five-Star MGA for the second consecutive year by IBA, and its high-net-worth division, Reliance Risk Solutions, earned the Cornerstone Elite Agency Designation from Chubb for the second year in a row.
