Hudson Insurance Group Introduces “HudsonPro” to Capitalize on Expertise and Synergies
New York, NY – July 13, 2021 – Hudson Insurance Group (Hudson) today announced the rebranding of its Management Liability, Financial Institutions, E&O and Medical Professional Liability lines of business under the new name HudsonPro. This move is accompanied by a clear reaffirmation to its broker partners: while some insurers may be retrenching, Hudson is putting its capacity and expertise to work in this sector.
The launch of HudsonPro is a natural progression of the Company’s business model, which stems from strong, organic growth and strategic acquisitions of underwriting teams and programs. Hudson has been continuously writing Medical Professional Liability, Management Liability and E&O lines with consistent profitability since 2002. As Hudson has grown and adapted to changing market conditions, it has continued to provide innovative products delivered by a team of proactive, proficient professionals utilizing a multi-disciplinary and solution-oriented approach that incorporates underwriting, actuarial, claims and legal teams.
HudsonPro is led by Trevor Howard, senior vice president, who originally joined Hudson in 2018 to lead the Management Liability team. He subsequently assumed responsibility for all of Hudson’s Financial Institutions, Medical Professional and E&O lines, both direct and via program administrators.
“Our momentum in all aspects of the professional liability market has never been stronger,” said Christopher Gallagher, president and CEO of Hudson. “Bringing these business teams together under Trevor’s leadership provides much needed clarity for our distribution partners in terms of demonstrating the breadth and depth of Hudson’s expertise and service capabilities.”
“Hudson is a full-service professional liability market that has the financial security, infrastructure and distribution capabilities to support the varied needs of clients in this sector,” stated Mr. Howard. “Today’s professional liability market presents tremendous opportunities for growth, and under the banner of HudsonPro, we will reap the benefits of enhanced collaboration, operational synergies and shared expertise” stated Mr. Howard.
Reporting to Mr. Howard are Cathy Cossu, head of Financial Institutions and Professional Liability, Matt Deneen, head of Management Liability, and Michelle Langen and Dave Leventhal, co-heads of Medical Professional Liability.
