Key appointment announced
22 Dec 2017
Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company (BHSI) has announced the appointment of Jared McGrath to head its new line of accident & and health (A&H) products in New Zealand. The product line includes corporate travel, group personal accident, and expatriate medical insurance.
“Jared comes to BHSI with extensive experience in the New Zealand A&H marketplace,” BHSI country manager New Zealand Cameron McLisky said.
McGrath brings nearly 15 years of industry experience to his new position, including his most recent role as New Zealand corporate manager with Chubb Insurance. He was also the A&H corporate account manager at the combined ACE/Chubb organization and A&H account manager at Ace Insurance.
BHSI said its new A&H products are distinguished by enhancements that provide meaningful and practical support to employees when they are in need.
For example, the insurer said its corporate travel insurance extends emergency assistance and concierge support to employees who face emergencies while travelling or that impact their home or family when they are away.
BHSI said online claim reporting is available for all its products, with SMS notifications keeping claimants up-to-date throughout the claims process.
In addition, BHSI provides its policyholders with emergency travel, medical and security assistance as well as concierge services through Dynamiq/First Assistance, which maintains 24/7 emergency operation centres in New Zealand and Australia.
