Chartis announced the launch of its Hospitality & Leisure Industry Practice Group (IPG), which provides highly specialized insurance and risk management solutions for the hotel, amusement, gaming, restaurant, resort and theme park segments.
Lance J. Ewing, former Vice President of Risk Management of Harrah's Entertainment, has been named U.S./Canada Industry Practice Leader for this regional IPG.
"The exposures of hospitality and leisure operations are diverse and can be extremely complex," said Ewing. "We want to delve deeply into what keeps our clients up at night and work with them to provide customized, innovative solutions that deliver exceptional protection and peace of mind."
Chartis noted that its IPGs offer an efficient point of coordination for customers and brokers to best leverage the company's global capabilities, and align the organization's resources and objectives to respond to the voice of the industry.
Marya Propis, Chartis U.S./Canada Industry Practice Group Officer, said, "The capabilities of our Hospitality & Leisure IPG extend well beyond basic insurance and risk management products. We leverage expertise in engineering, safety, crisis and claims management, marketplace strategies as well as market analytics to present optimal approaches to managing risk."
