Wright’s three-year term will begin on 16 September this year.
The ABA is a provider of legal education for lawyers and other professionals. The captive insurance committee’s mission is to “further educate those who work with captive insurance companies and related alternative risk transfer structures and transactions”.
In his new role, Wright will be responsible for promoting the participation of lawyers in section activities and encouraging them to become further involved in substantive work in the area.
Wright currently serves as vice chair for the captive insurance committee, and as a partner of the Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP New York office.
Jeffrey Friedman, Eversheds Sutherland (US) tax practice group leader, said: “Bruce Wright is a sound choice to serve in this important leadership role in the section. This honour is a true reflection of the dedication he has shown to his clients in the field of captive insurance, and we are proud of him.”
