The Navigators Group Inc., an international commercial property/casualty specialty insurance holding company, announced today that it has relocated its corporate headquarters to 400 Atlantic Street in Stamford, Conn., from its previous Rye Brook, N.Y., location.
The Navigators Group first announced its relocation plan last March.
“We are very excited and optimistic as we enter the next phase of our corporate growth following the relocation of our headquarters to Stamford,” said The Navigators Group CEO Stanley Galanski.
“We believe that the vibrant business community in Stamford and the growing insurance component of that community create the right environment for our headquarters, along with the advantages of Stamford’s transportation hub and plentiful support services,” Galanski said.
Galanski said his company was “very impressed” not only with the financial incentives offered to The Navigators Group, but by the personal involvement of Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy, Insurance Commissioner Tom Leonardi and Economic Development Commissioner Catherine Smith.
“They made it very clear that they felt Navigators to be an attractive, growth-oriented company they wanted to bring to their state. They succeeded in making a compelling case for us to make the move to Connecticut and become a vital part of the state’s world-leading insurance marketplace,” Galanski said.
