The Signature B&B Companies (SBB), a New York-based regional independent insurance brokerage and an Acrisure Agency Partner, has hired Julie Shumer as senior vice president.

Shumer, a 28-year veteran in the medical professional liability industry, will work in SBB’s healthcare division and focus on developing the firm’s medical professional and healthcare facility silo.

“Julie has extensive experience in the medical liability industry, and we are very pleased that she has joined our firm to help expand our healthcare division,” said SBB Managing Principal Peter Schapero in a company press release. “Julie is responsible for helping to build lines of coverage for SBB’s medical liability practice, and given her extensive relationships with physicians and healthcare facilities, we believe she will be especially effective in helping us to expand this division.”

In addition, Shumer will work within the infrastructure of Acrisure to assist agency partners in the Northeast to further enhance their medical malpractice liability presence.

“I look forward to working with SBB and fostering growth with one of Acrisure’s largest agency partners,” she said in the release. “Professional liability coverage is a rapidly changing segment of the healthcare industry, and I am excited to leverage my carrier and broker experience to develop innovative lines of coverage that benefit both physicians and healthcare facilities.”

Prior to joining SBB, Shumer was senior vice president of the healthcare division of Professional Medical Insurance Services, specializing in medical and facility liability coverages. Prior to that, she was director of large group programs with First Physicians Insurance Company (FPIC) and was also a claims manager with FPIC’s southeast territory.
