BofA exec leaves for AmWINS

Charlotte wholesale insurance company AmWINS has hired Todd Atwood away from Bank of America to be its new chief information officer.

Atwood had been a senior vice president at Bank of America and its chief architect executive. In his new role, he'll manage AmWINS software and data analytics. The company has about 2,800 employees across the more than 30 brokerage, underwriting and group benefit firms it has acquired.

“I was looking for an organization that views technology as a strategic resource, and not just a support function, and that’s what I found at AmWINS,” Atwood said in a statement. "Every industry needs someone to disrupt things by challenging the status quo, and that vision to lead change exists here."
