Westfield Specialty, a unit of Westfield Insurance Co., said Thursday that its Westfield Pro unit plans to expand its errors and omissions and cyber liability coverage, which until now has been offered on an excess-only basis, to the primary inventory.
Westfield Specialty Executive Vice President Jeff Kulikowski said in a statement that the insurer may offer primary and excess limits of up to $10 million, although the actual limit will be determined on an individual risk basis.
The insurer said it has added insurers in New York, Chicago and Alpharetta, Georgia, in recent months and is expanding to the West Coast.
It now underwrites five business areas: excess and excess lines property, excess casualty, financial institutions, commercial management liability and cyber and professional liability.
Westfield Specialty also said it has appointed Sara Trokan as senior vice president, specialty claims. Mrs. Trokan was previously vice president of claims management, cyber and privacy responsibility at Chubb Ltd.
Westfield Specialty, which launched in July 2021, is led by Jack Kuhn, former CEO of global insurance at Sompo International Holdings Ltd.
