George Biehl began his insurance career in the Philadelphia based World Headquarters of the former INA Group in 1956. He worked initially in the Special Risks Department which was the Home Office Casualty underwriting clearing unit for large Fortune 1000 accounts. He was a graduate of the INA Underwriting School. In 1965 he moved to the Commercial Insurance Department and specialized in commercial umbrella and professional liability lines. He completed his initial underwriting career in 1970 after three years in the INA Detroit branch.

Mr. Biehl began a long career as a reinsurance intermediary in 1970 when he joined Towers, Perrin, Forster & Crosby in its Philadelphia Home Office and worked on Treaty and Casualty facultative accounts.  In 1973 he joined Booth Potter Seal as Assistant Vice President for production of Treaty and Casualty Facultative reinsurance.  He joined E.W.
