"Our new presence in southeastern Germany enhances our ability to bring our full line of specialty insurance products, our financial strength, and our focus on service excellence to the German and European marketplace," said Chris COLAHAN, President, BHSI in Europe and the UK. "We are excited to be in Munich, continuing to build our global team of individuals with stellar capabilities and character."
The new office in Munich, along with the BHSI office in Dusseldorf, will underwrite property, casualty, medical malpractice, marine and executive & professional lines for a broad range of business segments in Germany.
BHSI also announced that it intends to build substantial local underwriting and claims capabilities in the new office and has filled its first two posts in Munich with Lars MESSUTAT, Senior Underwriter, Property, and Florian BIEBRACH, Senior Underwriter, Financial Lines, both of whom relocated from BHSI in Dusseldorf.
BHSI's Munich office is located at: Center Laim Landsberger Str. 302 80687 Munich, Germany
BHSI is part of Berkshire Hathaway's National Indemnity group of insurance companies, which hold financial strength ratings of A++ from AM Best and AA+ from Standard & Poor's. The Munich office's opening was preceded last year by the inauguration of another office in Dublin.
