Ironshore realigns wholesale distribution platform

Liberty Mutual subsidiary Ironshore has announced that it is realigning its wholesale distribution platform to meet the needs of the wholesale brokerage market. The company will have dedicated wholesale underwriting resources nationwide for its core specialty businesses – property, casualty, environmental, health and professional lines – and additional regional distribution resources. Ironshore’s expanded wholesale distribution team will also provide regional access points to aid in the localized delivery of wholesale products and services, the company said.

“Ironshore is investing in a more focused strategy to better meet the unique localized needs of our wholesale brokers, executing upon a balanced and diversified product platform,” said Ben Johnson, Ironshore’s senior vice president for wholesale distribution. “We are building preferred wholesale market partnerships, dedicating underwriters and a distribution team specifically to provide exceptional service and solutions for those partners.”

The wholesale distribution team will operate in three regions, with executive heads based in Liberty Mutual offices. Jessica Ferguson, wholesale branch executive East, will be based in Boston. Tara Houvenagle, wholesale branch executive Central, will be based in St. Louis. Eric Guinan, wholesale branch executive West, will be based in Los Angeles. Ferguson, Houvenagle and Guinan will oversee the development and placement of products and services across Ironshore’s wholesale distribution channels.
