“The new regions better enable our team to deliver more attentive service and become closer partners to our growing number of clients and brokers who trust us to find innovative and effective ways to manage their excess and umbrella liability coverages. John’s in-depth knowledge of the excess casualty market, as well as his experience and relationships in the South East region are a fantastic asset to our team,” Luck added.
