Denton's career has demonstrated more than three decades of value creation in the retail insurance and risk management industry. As CEO of EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants ("EPIC"), Denton led the build-out of its service platform and oversaw several recent acquisitions that broadened EPIC's resources and strengthened its geographic reach.
"I am grateful for the confidence John (Hahn) and our investors have placed in John (Jennings) and me as we take the helm of this incredible enterprise," said Denton. "We will build on the foundation that our business segment leaders have created with their clear vision, specialty driven strategies and, most importantly, our people-first culture."
As CEO of Jencap Group, LLC, and a member of its founding team, Jennings propelled Jencap to rank as the fourth-largest wholesale property and casualty (P&C) distribution firm in the U.S. With more than 35 years of experience, focused almost exclusively on the wholesale distribution space, Jennings is well-positioned to drive the continued growth of Galway's wholesale business.
"As Galway continues on its strong growth trajectory, I see vast potential for expansion across several business lines in our integrated platform," said Jennings. "I'm deeply appreciative of the confidence and trust John Hahn and the rest of Galway's executive team have invested in me to help drive our sustained success."
Hahn added, "I wholeheartedly believe in Steve and John's capability to excel in these roles. Their passion for what we are building, and belief in our unique culture, make them the perfect fit to drive our vision and strategy as we move forward. Our collective organizations are lucky to have strong leaders as we embark on new future endeavors together."
"Galway's unique approach to the market is what attracted us to partner with them years ago," said Steve Carlson, president, private equity at Harvest Partners. "We have seen them continue to add depth of leadership, services and exceed performance with their growth. The team at Harvest remains in close partnership with the strategic direction of the organization and is excited for the future."
