Socius Insurance Services has appointed a new member to its casualty practice in New York City.
Jerry Ascolese has been hired to serve Socius as vice-president of the insurance wholesaler’s new location. He has 25 years of experience in the insurance industry – the last 15 of which was spent specializing in construction, energy and casualty brokerage products in New York City, a release said.
In his new role, Ascolese will provide casualty insurance services for clients with complex and difficult-to-place risks. He will also oversee the formation of a full-service team and office for the New York region.
“We are very pleased to have Jerry join our team of casualty practice producers,” commented Socius Insurance Services president Patrick Hanley. “His expertise has given him the ability to identify and implement solutions for even the most complex of risk exposures and place coverage for a range of industry classes.”
