Following the move of Eric Michel to Distinguished Programs move from Argo, the US programme manager has launched an inland marine offering.
The Aquiline-backed platform said that the new service would provide coverage for various Inland Marine exposures, including Motor Truck Cargo, Contractor’s Equipment, Builder’s Risk, and more.
The company is recruiting and launching new teams “with proven underwriting track records”.
Distinguished Programs says that its philosophy is one of “support with autonomy”. It claimed that this enabled its teams “to deliver distinguished underwriting results to carrier partners” as well as “highly competitive products” to brokers.
Jason Rotman, president of Distinguished Programs, said that “Eric is a true leader in the sector, and we have complete confidence in his ability to assemble a top-notch team and deliver an outstanding insurance product to our clients”.
