GNY Insurance Companies has expanded its business operations in the Midwest.
The company is currently adding staff to better handle the business growth that began when it started writing in the Midwest earlier this year, according to Warren Heck, GNY chairman and chief executive officer. “GNY will begin by working with commercial insurance brokers in Illinois, and subsequently expand into all of the Midwestern states,” Heck said.
Sharon Kenny will manage the new operation, which is based in Chicago. Kenny has been working with Illinois brokers, independent agents and wholesalers for 24 years.
Heck said that GNY is looking to form partnerships with commercial lines producers, particularly those with habitational business in the Midwest.
GNY is licensed in 44 states and the District of Columbia and has been in operation for nearly 100 years. The insurer underwrites habitational, light industrial, office building, restaurant risks and shopping centers, as well as additional commercial lines classes. It is rated “A+” Superior by the A.M. Best Co.
GNY was recently ranked as one of the 2007 Super Regional Property Casualty Insurers by Insurance Journal. In 2006, GNY received the 2006 Insurer of the Year Award by the Insurance Brokers Association of New York.
