ESIS Inc., Chubb’s claims and risk management services division, has launched an Alternative Markets Practice focused on non-traditional casualty risks. The practice will provide clients with access to dedicated claim service professionals with expertise in comprehensive and specialized claim handling, medical cost containment, advanced data analytics, catastrophe and crisis management, and return-to-work programs.
Greg Youngblood, ESIS vice president of National Sale, said alternative markets, including program business and group captives as well as insurance carriers, require customized risk management solutions. “ESIS’ dedicated team of professionals understands non-traditional casualty risks and has specialized knowledge to effectively deliver solutions that are unique to alternative market exposures,” he said.
The new practice will be led by Vickie Betancourt, assistant vice president. Betancourt, based in Phoenix, joined ESIS from AmTrust Financial where she was regional sales manager. She previously was with Sedgwick’s CMS and Specialty Risk Services divisions and earlier in her career spent 17 years at Zurich. She is responsible for executing on the ESIS strategy nationally for group captives, programs and carrier outsourcing for claims administration.
The move into alternative markets follows several other recent expansion moves by ESIS. Last month it launched three new industry practices for life sciences, real estate and hospitality, and staffing firms. In May it expanded to serve healthcare organizations.
In January, ESIS released a mobile 24-hour response tool for severe workers’ compensation construction or complex automobile and general liability insurance claims.
