Jeffrey Hubbard, Brown & Riding
Senior Vice President, Environmental Practice Leader
BROWN & RIDING
With a wealth of experience in the environmental sector, Jeff Hubbard joined Brown & Riding in 2018 and leads a team of dedicated environmental specialists as head of the company’s environmental practice group. In addition to his experience in risk management with a building products firm, Hubbard has spent more than 25 years as an environmental underwriter, manager or broker, concentrating primarily on complex risk and high-hazard operations.
“My first experience with environmental insurance was in risk management,” Hubbard says. “I worked for a firm that operated cast iron foundries, and one of my first tasks was to go through old general liability policies to catalog what, if any, pollution exclusion was on the policy so we could pursue coverage with our old carriers for some Superfund claims. It was great – a giant coverage jigsaw puzzle – and I was hooked. When AIG gave me the opportunity to learn the specialty as an underwriter, I jumped at the chance and have loved it ever since.”
Hubbard’s experience includes residential and industrial contractors, as well as refining, transportation and production of petroleum products. He also has extensive experience with brownfield redevelopment, hospitality and real estate portfolios, and other heavy industries such as foundries, metal plating, and chemical manufacturing.
