Companies Partner to Offer New Elevator Insurance Program
JM Associates/Burnham + Company, a division of Hub International Northeast, announced today that The Hartford will now be the general liability carrier for its national elevator program.
The new product will provide coverage for elevator clients, contractors, inspectors, consultants, distributors and manufacturers, with coverage enhancements for their general liability policies at competitive rates through The Hartford.
Existing clients will continue to work with their existing account management team, which is made up of individuals with decades of experience in serving the elevator industry and extensive claims handling knowledge.
“We are excited to announce this new alliance with The Hartford, a well-respected carrier known for its long term relationships and quality customer service,” said John Tateossian, vice president, JM/Burnham. “We are continuously seeking out the best insurance options available to market for our clients and The Hartford’s extensive offerings and outstanding reputation make it an ideal fit for Hub and our customers.”
Teaming up with JM/Burnham was also a good fit for The Hartford, which is always looking to partner with best-in-class program administrators, said Gary Thompson, executive vice president and chief underwriting officer for the Hartford, Conn.-based insurer’s Commercial Markets.
The Fort Lee, N.J.-based JM/Burnham has been creating comprehensive insurance and risk management products and programs for the elevator industry for over 40 years.
