January 15, 2016— Odell Studner, a leading provider of risk consulting and insurance brokerage services to middle-market companies, has been recognized for the first time ever as Broker of the Year for the Affinity Ltd. Group Captive for the 2014-2015 underwriting year. This also marks the second consecutive year that Odell Studner has been honored as a Top 5 Broker.


Affinity Insurance, Ltd. is a member-owned heterogeneous group captive domiciled in the Cayman Islands. The Broker of the Year and Top 5 Broker awards are evaluated based on the following criteria: client retention, new business production, client loss ratios, client safety award scores and risk control assessment scores.


“With over 70 different brokers appointed to this program, achieving the overall top ranking is no easy accomplishment,” said Tom Ullrich, Principal/Executive Vice President with Captive Resources, LLC. “Affinity recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary, and the program would not be where it is today without the support of solid brokers like Odell Studner.”


“It feels amazing to be honored not only as a Top 5 Broker, but also as Broker of the Year,” said Steven Odell, CEO, Odell Studner. “I attribute this success to my entire team as well as to everyone at Captive Resources for all of their efforts in helping us to achieve this distinction.” Currently, Odell Studner represents over 100 companies in the group captive insurance market.
