John Hohlt

Executive Vice President, Head of Surety

Houston, TX

John is responsible for servicing and consulting on the surety bonds for clients handled by CAC Specialty Natural Resources.

John specializes in oil and gas surety. Originally a surety underwriter, John started his career with Argo Surety before joining Wortham in 2015. In 2017 he was recognized as a top young broker by Insurance Business Magazine primarily for his extensive research and knowledge of Bureau of Ocean Energy Management regulations which enabled him to specifically target clients with offshore surety bond needs, limiting risk and countless hours of guesswork. Later, he helped develop and implement the use of the Dual Obligee Bond in the Gulf of Mexico for both BOEM and private obligations. He has a deep knowledge of all aspects of the energy market and their surety needs. Later this year, he will be speaking at NASBP on the State of the Union for Oil and Gas Surety. Outside of energy, John has a strong grasp of contract surety and all forms of commercial surety.

John has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance with a specialization in Alternative Investments from Fordham University. He graduated with honors and was on the Varsity football team. He is a member of the National Association of Surety Bond Producers (NASBP) as well as the Houston Surety Association.
