Edward Kushlis has been appointed sales leader for the Baltimore office for Willis Group Holdings (NYSE: WSH), the global insurance broker.
Kushlis has been with Willis for 20 years. This past year he served as the regional operating officer for the company’s Southeast Region. Within this new role, he will now be charged with driving the operations, creating sales opportunities and enhancing client service for the Baltimore- Washington, D.C. market area.
Kushlis’ plans for growth of Baltimore operations will build upon the strong foundation established by David Shuey, Baltimore’s Leader from 1998 to present. He will focus upon organic growth as well as vigorously recruiting additional producer talent. He will also actively explore acquisition opportunities within the region.
Kushlis’s transition to Willis’ Baltimore office will be made easier by the continued presence of David Shuey, former Leader in Baltimore. Shuey will remain in the Baltimore office and return to new business production.
Prior to Willis, Kushlis represented the public accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche in Baltimore, where he was in charge of auditing another international insurance broker. He is a Certified Public Accountant and holds the Charted Property and Casualty Underwriter designation.
