GCube Insurance Services, Inc., the leading global insurer of renewable energy technologies, announced today that John McLane has joined the company as Senior Vice President.
Mr. McLane will be responsible for growing GCube's renewable energy business held by utilities and independent power producers. With over 30 years in the industry, John has worked on all facets of insurance programs, captives, finite risk, self-insurance plans, owner-controlled insurance programs, traditional property and casualty brokerage and contractual risk transfer supporting clients in power generation.
"We are very excited to have John join the team and expand our business development and strategy efforts with utilities as he brings extensive experience working with the power generation industry. We look forward to demonstrating our value and expertise to this particular sector of the market and know that John has the reputation and respect in the industry to lead this initiative," said Pat Stumbras, Executive Vice President of GCube.
"GCube has worked very hard to set the standard for insuring renewable energy risks. I have worked with GCube on numerous occasions to insure clients' risks and I am very excited to join the team. I firmly believe we are at a pivotal point in the global economy and the development of our energy infrastructure and are seeing a reduced role for fossil fuels. With 20 years experience insuring renewable energy projects, GCube is a leading facilitator in this transition. GCube CEO, Mike Bernay, Pat and the whole GCube team have laid a great foundation for success and it will be my goal to expand and strengthen their efforts," said John McLane on joining the company.
Most recently as partner at Iridium Clean Energy, John lead the renewable energy and clean technology practice where he was responsible for setting renewal and marketing strategies, establishing service plans for power generation and clean energy accounts and developing relationships with the markets and underwriters active in the energy industry.
Previously, John was a Senior Vice President at William Gallagher Associates (WGA) serving as Energy Group Practice Leader where he led a team of specialists with property, casualty, professional liability and environmental coverage expertise.
