Houston International Insurance Group, Ltd., has expanded its management liability coverage offerings to include an excess public D&O (Directors and Officers) product.

As part of this expansion, the company hired underwriter Peter Bujosa, as Public D&O lead. Bujosa previously worked at American International Group and Alliant Insurance Services in their management liability divisions, with a focus on public D&O. Additionally, Nishal Patel, a private company D&O underwriter, has recently joined the team as a director, Private Company D&O.

According to Michael Abdulahad, vice president who leads HIIG’s Executive Liability division, the hardening of the public D&O marketplace creates an opportune time for it to enter the market.
