|Dear MPG/One80 Brokers:
With the New Year comes big changes for Maritime Program Group, particularly within our Yacht and Rec Marine Facilities departments. With very mixed emotions, we celebrate the departure of several of our staff who are retiring, while we also welcome several new team members.
Employees who have either just retired, effective 12/31, or who will retire at the end of this month, 1/31, include Michael Terrier, Yacht Department Manager for 17 years, Sue Williams, Yacht Underwriter for 15 years, John Hewlett, Yacht Underwriter for 14 years, Brenda Champagne, Rec Marine Facilities Underwriter for 18 years and Deb Cameron, Administrative Assistant for 17 years. We thank each of these individuals for their contributions and loyal dedication that have shaped MPG into the largest and longest tenured program underwriter of recreational marine insurance. We will miss our crew members dearly and wish each of them the very best on their new journey, as they have all been more than just employees or co-workers, they have been family and will forever remain part of the MPG crew!
With retirements come new beginnings as we have embraced the opportunity to expand the MPG family! You have likely seen several announcements over the past few months as MPG has been preparing for this change by bringing on new hires. We have added a great crew of veteran industry underwriters to support our brokers and continued growth:
With the addition of these talented individuals combined with our existing seasoned staff and the number of partner carriers, programs and capacity we now have, MPG truly stands alone as the go to market for boats and yachts anywhere in the U.S.!
Last, but not least, despite the challenges we all faced as a nation and industry, 2020 was a tremendous year for MPG and we owe all of our success to our broker partnerships; thank you all very much! We look forward to prosperous and healthy 2021 for all of us! Always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
