Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies recently hired Connie Bedaw as senior field representative to address targeted growth in New England. She will be affiliated with Berkshire Hathaway GUARD’s office in Nashua, New Hampshire.
Bedaw will serve producers in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont — three of the longest tenured territories in the company’s operating area. In her new capacity, she is responsible for identifying prospects for appointments while providing information about available resources and new developments to existing members of the distribution network. She will also function as agents’ field liaison with Berkshire Hathaway GUARD’s underwriting, loss control, and claims staff.
Bedaw has been part of the insurance industry in New England for over 35 years. Before joining Berkshire Hathaway GUARD, Bedaw was most recently employed as senior vice president of Agency Development/Agency Development Field Consultant for the SAN Group/SIAA.
A specialist in writing workers’ compensation (particularly for small- to mid-sized risks), the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania-based Berkshire Hathaway GUARD recently accomplished a geographical expansion plan and is now able to write workers’ comp policies nationwide. In October of 2012, GUARD was acquired by National Indemnity Company, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Berkshire Hathaway GUARD wrote approximately $500 million in premium in 2013 for about 70,000 businesses.
