Our client is a National leader in writing larger casualty construction accounts and they are hiring in their Midwest Regional office located in Chicago. This is a collaborative office with a very experienced and well respected staff in place and they're hoping to add someone who fits in well and enjoys production underwriting as they actually underwrite here. No cookie cutter underwriting allowed. They like to find a way to write smart business. 

You'll be responsible for the marketing, production and underwriting of a $13m - $14m book of business featuring larger casualty construction accounts primarily in the Chicago area. You will work actively with brokers and agents in your assigned territory to market and produce new business and also handle the renewals when then come up. All accounts involve guaranteed cost and some involve loss sensitive underwriting. This is casualty only, no property so you must be proficient with workers compensation, GL auto and some limited umbrella. The territory also includes OH and IN, so there will be some limited travel, but most of the business on the books comes from the Chicago area. New business goals will be set together. 

Our client prefers hiring someone with an affinity for marketing, strong technical underwriting skills and existing broker relationships within this territory. You do not have to have construction underwriting experience, but it is preferred. A large middle market production underwriting background or a national accounts underwriting background with an interest in moving into the construction industry segment would also be considered. Ideally looking for between 5 and 7 years of production underwriting experience and with at least some exposure to construction accounts and a 'get the job done' approach. 

College degree is mandatory. 
Local candidates only. 
Extremely competitive compensation.
