Brad Gow joined Zurich North America to head the Specialty Errors & Omissions (E&O) group of its Specialties business unit.
In this role, Gow will head a nationwide team in delivering professional liability protection to markets including engineering, media, technology, real estate and specified professions. Gow will also be integral to the development and launch of new products and services to address emerging E&O exposures, such as security and privacy risks.
Gow brings 20 years of insurance industry experience to Zurich. Most recently, he was vice president of Professional Liability product management with ACE Insurance, where he developed a line of technology E&O and network risk products. Before joining ACE, Gow was co-founder of NetDiligence, a venture capital-backed network security and privacy consulting firm focused on the needs of network risk underwriters. Between 1992 and 2000, Gow held a variety of positions with CIGNA, including international roles in Tokyo and Bangkok. He began his insurance career at AIG in 1989.
Recognized for his knowledge of network liability risks, Gow has been a frequent commentator on privacy, network risk, technology E&O and product development topics.
Gow said, “New technologies and media create significant liability exposure for today’s professionals. My goal is not simply to keep up with the risks our customers face today, but to anticipate emerging risks and develop solutions to address them.”
