XL Catlin grows construction insurance team
XL Catlin’s North America Construction business has added two more personnel to its team in order to address the construction industry’s excess casualty insurance needs.
Jillian Eckert and Laura Travis have joined the Philadelphia-based team.
Ed Totten, senior vice-president, underwriting manager in XL Catlin’s North America Construction Excess Casualty Profit Centre, said: “Given the pace of construction activity throughout the Mid-Atlantic states and the size of construction projects throughout the region, the need for quality excess casualty insurance coverage — both on a practice and project basis — continues to grow.
“As the industry’s go-to excess casualty insurance market for contractors and their brokers, we’re excited to see our team grow and attract industry underwriting talent like Jillian and Laura.
“They bring a lot of strong energy and new ideas to our team. It’s this kind of energy, ideas and overall commitment to contractors that will continue to drive our growth as we help our clients take advantage of the ample construction opportunities available throughout the region.”
Ms Eckert joins XL Catlin from Willis Towers Watson, while Ms Travis previously worked as a commercial underwriter for Nationwide Insurance.
