Liberty International Underwriters Expands U.S. Global Crisis Management Unit

October 22, 2012

Liberty International Underwriters has set up a Dallas-based operation dedicated to handling Global Crisis Management (GCM) business for the southeastern and southwestern U.S.

Led by Tom Dunlap, assistant vice president and regional manager for southeast and southwest regions of LIU Global Crisis Management, underwriters will have local decision-making authority for Contaminated Products; Product Recall; and Kidnap, Ransom and Extortion (KRE) insurance.

Dunlap is joined by Underwriting Officer Karen McCullough and Underwriting Specialists Jan Lovell and Kim Gardner.

“Businesses are increasingly seeking out crisis management insurance products to help better protect their assets from the uncertainty following crisis events such as kidnapping, extortion, contaminated food and dangerous products released into the marketplace,” said Louis Lubrano, senior vice president of global crisis management for Liberty International Underwriters. “Demand for LIU Global Crisis Management products is particularly strong in the southeastern and southwestern sections of the U.S., so it made sense for us to establish a presence in the region with underwriters who have extensive experience with area brokers.”

The Dallas operation is the latest addition to LIU’s Global Crisis Management offering that includes offices in New York and San Francisco as well as Toronto, London, Sydney and Melbourne.

LIU’s Global Crisis Management products are supported by red24, global security assistance, that gives brokers and their clients access to an experienced kidnap, ransom and extortion consulting and response team. Working with red24, LIU helps brokers provide the specialized loss control engineering and loss mitigation services necessary to protect clients’ employees, operations, and reputation before, during and after a crisis.
