National Underwriting Update
2019 has been a remarkable year for the National Underwriting department, and we’re only halfway through!
Our focus this year has been on building relationships – both new and old – strengthening our current relationships with key brokers and clients through memorable outings such as the NY Fishing Charter and conferences such as BCONE’s Northwest Sustainable Communities Work (NSCW), and developing new relationships through the successful underwriting of new business accounts together.
We continue to address challenges we have seen in the marketplace such as the ever-changing environmental regulatory landscape. We strive to continuously educate ourselves on emerging issues, in an effort to assist our brokers with providing comprehensive, tailored coverage for their clients.
The team is stronger than ever and well-positioned to continue to serve you and your clients for many years to come. In addition to opening our office in Los Angeles, we are deepening our staff in our Exton, New York and Boston offices to better serve our brokers and their clients.
With a continued focus on recruiting talented people to our group, we welcomed Sarah Brown and Ryan Schaefer to our underwriting team. Sarah and Ryan work out of our Boston and Los Angeles offices, respectively.
As we continue to provide best-in-class environmental insurance, you have our commitment that even as we grow, our level of service will remain unchanged. Our main objective will remain focused on best serving you – our brokers and agents.
Thank you for your continued business!
