Global broker WTW has announced two new hires within its North American Corporate Risk and Broking (CRB) business.
The company has appointed Tom Rhatigan as Northeast senior director and commercial surety leader for CRB in the Northeast region, and Dan Peck as director and New England contract surety leader.
Rhatigan has more than 25 years of industry experience in both underwriting and broking. In his new role, he will be responsible for driving new business through strategic growth across commercial surety. He joins WTW from Marsh, where he served as managing director and head of the Northeast surety practice. Rhatigan will report to Scott Hull, global head of surety at WTW.
Peck has 15 years of industry experience. He joins the company from The Hartford, where he served as regional surety leader. Peck brings both technical proficiency and geographical expertise to the role, having served clients from Maine to Florida. He will report to Douglas Wheeler, contract surety leader for CRB North America.
“We continue to hire those professionals that align perfectly with our North American CRB focus on expertise and specialization, and Dan and Tom align perfectly with that strategy,” said Michael Chang, WTW head of CRB, North America. “I look forward to helping them deliver best-in-class solutions to clients throughout the Northeast region.”
The hires represent the latest expansion to the North American CRB team. Last month, WTW named Dominic Gallina head of property broking for real estate, hospitality and leisure. In December, it appointed James Sallada as head of casualty.
