HCC Insurance Holdings, a Texas-based international specialty insurance group, has opened its new Primary Casualty and Excess Casualty divisions.
The company said the Primary Casualty division led by Chris Day will focus on construction, manufacturing and premises risks with underwriting teams headquartered in Chicago and Los Angeles.
Day has held leadership positions in several Primary Casualty units.
The Excess Casualty division led by Phil Joschko will be based in Chicago with an underwriting presence on the West Coast and will focus on construction, manufacturing, premises and public entity risks, added the firm.
Joschko has held several senior roles in Excess Casualty units.
The divisions will further expand the company’s specialty focus by extending its underwriting activities into general liability and excess liability insurance for construction, manufacturing, premises and public entity risks.
HCC Insurance CEO John Molbeck said given their leadership position in specialty insurance, establishing a strong general casualty underwriting capability is a natural progression for HCC. They are fortunate to have recruited two highly experienced and respected underwriting executives to build this specialty business for HCC.
