XL Group Grows Presence In Atlanta

NEW YORK, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- XL Group is expanding its footprint and boosting its insurance underwriting operations with new additions to its Primary Casualty, Excess Casualty, Marine, Construction and Regional Management teams in Atlanta.

" Atlanta is the global headquarters to many multinational firms, including several of our Fortune 500 clients, and  the primary insurance hub of the Southeastern US,"  according to Greg Hendrick, Chief Executive Officer of XL Group's global insurance operations. "It is a city where our business relationships and opportunities certainly continue to grow. That's why we're pleased to put more underwriting and product line expertise there.  We'll be more accessible to work closely with our brokers and clients and find optimal insurance solutions that can address their day-to-day operational risks as well as their more challenging risks."
