RSG Underwriting Managers (RSGUM) has announced the combination of two of its managing general underwriter teams, EmergIn Risk and ThinkRisk. The combined teams will operate under the EmergIn Risk brand.
Reza Khan will lead the team’s media liability and specialty E&O products on a global basis. Jamie Bouloux will lead the global cyber, technology E&O, and miscellaneous E&O initiatives. Both Khan and Bouloux will be headquartered in New York. Underwriting for EmergIn Risk will continue in the US and London, with Debbie Hobbs heading up the London operations.
By combining the teams, RSGUM is able to provide deeper underwriting expertise, broader jurisdictional capabilities and new, innovative emerging products for clients, the company said. ThinkRisk, RSGUM’s first managing general underwriter, was launched in 2010 and specializes in liability, specialized E&O coverages and cyber products for US businesses. EmergIn Risk, launched in 2016, specializes in underwriting complex cyber and tech-related exposures for global businesses in sectors including energy and utilities, financial institutions, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, retail and transportation.
“The combination of these two outstanding underwriting teams allows RSGUM to provide greater depth of products and services to our clients,” said Mike Rice, chairman and CEO of RSGUM. “Working together, Reza, Jamie and the newly merged EmergIn Risk team will collaborate in both the expansion of existing programs as well as the creation of new emerging products.”
