To better serve property brokers, agents and buyers, Liberty Mutual has enhanced its equipment breakdown operation by adding senior underwriting and technical engineering resources, and opening a San Francisco office.
Equipment breakdown is a necessary coverage for complex global property risks, notes Mike Martin, executive vice president and general manager, Liberty Mutual s National Accounts Property. We offer buyers and brokers a full product set supported by top-notch underwriting, engineering, and jurisdictional inspection resources. To help deliver this value, we hired three key positions and opened an office that enables us to be closer to our partners.
The new staff includes: John Volle, senior manager of Equipment Breakdown Reinsurance Assumed. John will work with insurers and brokers to provide cost-effective, quality equipment breakdown to their clients. Many insurers and brokers can benefit from expertise regarding equipment breakdown coverage. John has more than 20 years of reinsurance experience, most recently with Hartford Steam Boiler.
Jennifer Soul, director of underwriting for the Western Region. Jennifer will drive Liberty Mutual s equipment breakdown business throughout the region from the San Francisco office. She has more than 10 years of engineering, sales and underwriting experience and joins Liberty Mutual from the Mutual Boiler Re division of FM Global.
Wilton Boyette Sanford, senior risk engineer. Boyette joins the Equipment Breakdown Technical Risk Engineering unit to help service complex equipment breakdown policyholders in high hazard industries, particularly heavy manufacturing, and with state-of-the-art equipment. In addition to directly servicing policyholders, he and other members of the Technical Risk Engineering team will help our broader team understand these complex industries and equipment. Boyette has more than 25 years of experience, most recently with Hartford Steam Boiler.
