Martime Program Group (MPG) announced on Wednesday a significant expansion and restructure of our Recreational Marine division with the additional of two very talented new crew members, Dana Downes and Shari Trefil.
As the Vice President of our Recreational Marine division, Dana assumes the overall responsibilities for all of our commercial recreational marine business including our New Hampshire Insurance Company, North American Specialty and Chubb facilities. Dana's experience in recreational marine underwriting dates back to the late 80's when he was a Regional Manager for the New Hampshire Insurance Company and he founded the North American Specialty program in 1990. Most recently Dana was the Director of Marine for the Hanover Insurance Group for the three years prior to joining MPG. Dana will be based out of Manchester, NH.
Shari brings with her 23 years of experience in the insurance industry, mostly having managed retail and wholesale recreational marine departments. As a Sr. Broker for MPG, Shari will work with new and existing broker relationships to cross sell MPG's products and to access markets for risks that fall outside the appetite of MPG's in-house programs. MPG is very excited to have Shari's brokerage expertise put to work for our producer partners. Shari will be based out of Stuart, FL.
Chris Pesce, president of MPG, said" "I am excited to have these two very talented individuals join MPG as it furthers our commitment to building the most talented team of underwriters in the marine industry."
