PMA Companies, a provider of a broad range of workers' compensation and related commercial insurance risk management solutions, announced today that it is expanding its footprint in New England with a focus on growing Third Party Administration (TPA) accounts and property & casualty insurance business. The announcement came at the RIMS 2010 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Boston.

PMA’s New England operation will have Meriden, CT as its regional hub and initially focus on Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont. PMA’s Meriden office, which offers in-house underwriting, claims and risk control services, has 48 staff members and expects to add staff as new business increases.

“We have the infrastructure in place, as well as the experienced, knowledgeable local staff, to bring our unique brand of PMA Companies insurance and risk management solutions to more clients in the New England region,” said John Santulli, Executive Vice President, PMA Companies. “We look forward to sharing our risk management expertise with the leading institutions, companies and public entities throughout the New England states, bringing even greater ease of doing business and tangible results to their workers’ compensation and related commercial risk management programs.”

The New England expansion began in 2008 when PMA Capital Corporation purchased PMA Management Corp. of New England (formerly known as Webster Risk Services), a regional TPA provider based in Meriden. Since then, PMA has established a full-service PMA Branch Office, offering Third Party Administrator (TPA) and risk services through PMA Management Corp. of New England, and property and casualty insurance & services through PMA Insurance Group. Leading the New England team are Alan Mathog, President of PMA Management Corp. of New England, and Ed Scannell, Vice President for PMA Insurance Group.
