NAM Adds James J. Wrynn, Esq. As Chief Commercial Officer


New York, NY (September 3, 2019) – NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the nation's leading providers of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services, today announced the appointment of James J. Wrynn, Esq., as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO).

Mr. Wrynn will lead and drive all aspects of NAM's national business strategy and continued development of the firm's fast-growing commercial practice nationwide.

“Our customers are at the center of everything we do at NAM, and we are excited to have Jim join our team as CCO,” said Roy Israel, President and CEO of NAM. “Jim's leadership skills and long history of serving the domestic and global insurance and regulatory sectors will ensure we continue to deliver an exceptional experience for our clients, and to accelerate NAM's growth and extend our market leadership position within the business and legal communities.”

A longtime advocate of ADR, Mr. Wrynn's deep knowledge of, and experience in, the insurance regulatory sector coupled with more than 25 years of experience as a litigator representing both plaintiffs / claimants and defendants across a variety of complex civil and commercial matters make him well-suited to serve as NAM's CCO.

Mr. Wrynn brings more than 35 years of professional experience as an attorney, regulator, executive and strategic advisor in the domestic and global insurance and regulatory sectors. In his previous role as the 40th and last Superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department, Mr. Wrynn managed and streamlined the operations of both the New York State Insurance Department (NYSID) and the New York Liquidation Bureau (NYLB) and oversaw multi-million-dollar budgets that included hundreds of employees and thousands of agents, brokers and other producers. He has also served as the first Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS), the Executive Director of the New York State Insurance Fund (NYSIF), and played an integral role within both the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), and the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS).

Prior to joining NAM, Mr. Wrynn most recently served as Senior Managing Director and one of the leaders in the Global Insurance Services practice at FTI Consulting. He also held the position of Managing Director and Vice-Chair in the U.S. for Guy Carpenter's Global Strategic Advisory Group. Immediately prior to joining Guy Carpenter, Mr. Wrynn was a Senior Partner at the law offices of Goldberg Segalla, LLP in New York, and led the firm's Global Insurance Regulatory Practice and helped facilitate the opening of its New York and London offices (where he served as a Registered Foreign Lawyer).
