Wholesale specialty insurance distributor CRC Group has announced that its specialty programs division will now conduct business under the new brand Starwind.
Created through the combination of CRC Programs and the recently acquired Constellation Affiliated Partners, Starwind will be among the largest program managers in North America. The company will serve more than 10,000 insureds and write more than $320 billion in annual premium across its more than 30 brands.
“Rebranding as one to become Starwind helps clarify that all of our combined experience and specialty knowledge is available and working together to provide our clients with the broadest spectrum of niche products in today’s market,” said Bill Goldstein, CEO of CRC Group’s specialty programs division.

Starwind will continue to offer products across a wide spectrum of industries, including transportation, construction, executive and professional, reinsurance, and more. Starwind clients in these industries will have access to unique products unavailable in the standard marketplace.
“The scope and scale of Starwind’s programs allow clients to benefit from the expertise within the Starwind brands to quickly find solutions that meet their needs,” Goldstein said.
