In Memory of Eugene J. Eisenmann, NAPSLO Past President

Over the past weekend the NAPSLO family lost one of its past presidents, Eugene J. Eisenmann. Gene served as NAPSLO President from 1994 to 1995 and was on the NAPSLO Board from 1990 to 1996.

After serving in the industry for many years Gene had recently served as a consultant and Vice Chairman at tKg and advisor to AmWINS as well as other wholesalers.

 Previously he served as Chairman Emeritus of Colemont Insurance Brokers prior to its sale to AmWINS. In his early days in the industry he worked for Stewart Smith Southwest, Inc. before founding HEATH Insurance Brokers, Inc. where he served as President and later Chairman following the renaming of the firm to Colemont in 2004.

In addition to serving on the NAPSLO Board, Gene served as President of the Texas Surplus Lines Association and had been a Director and Chairman of the Surplus Lines Stamping Office of Texas.

 He is survived by his wife Denise, three sons, a daughter and many grandchildren. At Gene’s request, services will be limited to family. At the family’s request, donations in Gene’s name can be made to the Prostate Cancer Foundation at: www.pcf.org.

 Gene was a wonderful human being. To know Gene was to love him. A first class businessman who rose from a humble background to the pinnacle of our industry, he never forgot where he came from. Gene was that rare individual who could get results while never losing sight of the human side of our business.
