U.S. Risk Underwriters, a subsidiary of storefront owner U.S. Risk Insurance Group, Inc., the ninth largest managing general agency and surplus lines wholesaler in the nation, announced that it is relocating four programs currently operated by the U.S. Risk subsidiary, Lighthouse Underwriters.
The programs – ElderCare, StaffPak, PLPros and TAKE 1 – will be relocated to U.S. Risk Underwriter facilities, but continue to be marketed under the Lighthouse Underwriters name.
“These moves will help us improve service and tap into existing underwriting expertise within U.S. Risk,” said Art Seifert, President of U.S. Risk Underwriters. “We know agents have a choice and we want our service to meet or exceed their expectations. This consolidation will help us accomplish that goal by enabling us to better manage the processing and service end of our business while maintaining our excellent underwriting and marketing.”
The program relocations are:
Lighthouse ElderCare will move to Boston Insurance Brokerage, Inc., a Boston-based subsidiary of U.S. Risk. The program manager will be Kevin Mordarski, who includes five years in healthcare underwriting at AIG among his experience. He most recently served as a Senior Broker at Boston Insurance Brokerage. To ensure a smooth transition, ElderCare business will continue to be serviced in Annandale, Va., until the Boston office assumes all program responsibilities.
StaffPak, an insurance program for the staffing industry, will move to Dallas and Peter Stanislaw will continue as the Program Manager.
PLPros, the professional liability program, will become part of the Dallas-based PLPros team led by Jeff Fields.
TAKE 1, a program for the entertainment industry, will make its full transition to the U.S. Risk office in Irvine, Calif., over the next three months. TAKE 1 Program Director Scott Carroll is located in the Irvine office.
All relocations are expected to be completed by Oct. 1, 2008.
