Ck Specialty Expands Into Oregon

February 23, 2005

Ck Specialty Insurance Associates Inc., a surplus line broker and managing general agent, has expanded operations into Oregon with a new office in Sherwood, just south of Portland in Washington County.

Ck Specialty offers various markets that allow for the placement of risks in a wide array of classes that includes, but is not limited to: contractors (general and artisan), homeowners and dwelling fire, apartment packages, consultants, mercantile, and manufacturers.

“We are excited about the possibilities in Oregon. We have been well received and have already opened some doors to markets for agents that were previously thought to be closed,” said Carol Connors, president and CEO of Ck Specialty. Connors also noted that the emphasis that Ck Specialty puts on customer service has already paid dividends at a very early stage.

Ck Specialty has been operating in California and Nevada for seven and a half years. The company represents both admitted and non-admitted carriers. For more information on Ck Specialty and the services provided, contact Jay Walmsley at (503) 625-6223 or visit
