ACE USA, the U.S.-based retail operations of the ACE Group, today announced the appointment of William P. Hazelton as Construction Industry Practice Leader. In this role, Mr. Hazelton will be responsible for driving the overall strategic and tactical delivery of the company’s products and services within the Construction Industry Practice. He will also oversee ACE USA’s primary casualty construction business in addition to his current role as Executive Vice President of ACE Environmental Risk.

Craig Richardson has been named Senior Vice President, Environmental Risk, with responsibility for managing all day to day underwriting and marketing operations for the division. Geoffrey Hall, Senior Vice President, will continue to lead the day to day underwriting and marketing activities for ACE’s Primary Construction unit.

Mr. Hazelton will lead a broad team of dedicated construction underwriting and service specialists across multiple lines of business, including Excess Casualty, Environmental Risk, Builder’s Risk, Foreign Casualty, Surety, Professional Risk and ESIS, Inc., to deliver stand-alone and integrated insurance solutions to the construction industry through retail brokers. Mr. Hazelton will continue to report to Ross Bertossi, Division President, ACE USA Casualty Lines.

“The risks inherent in the construction industry are technical and complex. ACE USA has demonstrated a unique commitment to deploy underwriting expertise, engineering and claims management services for a wide range of customers to manage these complex risks,” said Mr. Bertossi. “Bill and Craig have driven the segmentation and expansion of ACE USA’s environmental businesses. Craig is an experienced insurance executive and is well positioned to continue this expansion.
