Directors and Officers and Professional Liability insurance for insurance companies are difficult classes of business. A relatively small number for insurers are willing to provide this type of coverage, making a strategic approach to your placement very important.
The selection of a broker who understands the insurance industry from the insurer’s view and who has strong relationships with Underwriters active in this marketplace is vital to your business. Lemme Insurance Group, Inc. has the experience to help your organization assess its exposure, communicate its strengths through a professional submission, negotiate terms, and ultimately place coverage with high quality insurers. The specialty, focused nature of our Firm makes this process different from what you may have experienced with other brokers.
Our people make the difference. Tom Smith and John Hecht lead our efforts with insurance companies. Prior to joining Lemme, Tom spent 30 years in various management and underwriting positions with insurers, most recently as The Hartford’s national practice leader for Insurance Company Directors & Officers and Professional Liability products. He has developed loss prevention programs, bad faith audit procedures and consulted to insurance company clients throughout his career. John has focused on the broking of insurance company and other financial services firm risks while at Lemme. Together they bring a broad understanding of the industry, marketplace, products and players currently writing insurance company business.
