Crum & Forster has announced the expansion of its eRisk team through the hiring of two underwriters to support the growth of its business in the Southeast region.
Safeer Mohammed and Ross Perkins, both based in the Atlanta area, will underwrite cyber and technology E&O as well as miscellaneous E&O. They are part of the company’s executive risk team, which also offers management liability, crime, lawyers’ professional liability, and errors and omission covers.
Mohammed joins the company from Beazley, where he focused on specialty lines technology and privacy underwriting. He has also worked with several other carriers, specializing in professional liability, technology E&O and cyber.
Perkins joins Crum & Forster from Marsh, where he was a member of the financial and professional liability team. Prior to entering the insurance industry, he worked as a consultant at Accenture. In addition to his underwriting role, Perkins will assist in product delivery and customer experience.
“Ross and Safeer are important additions not only for their underwriting expertise but for the added value they bring to our team for their abilities to solve customer needs and deliver a superior customer experience,” said Nick Economidis, vice president of Crum & Forster’s executive risk team. “The expansion of our physical presence in the Atlanta market adds one more chapter to our exciting growth story in the Southeast region, and we are happy that they are a part of it.”
