An insurance brokerage has announced the promotion of a Hamilton-based specialist in its environmental and construction professional practice.
The firm, RT Specialty, said it has elevated Bill Webb to the role of vice president. A specialist with more than 20 years of experience within the professional liability insurance marketplace, he joined the environmental and construction professional team in 2017 as an assistant vice president to support its national network of agents, brokers and business relationships.
He has since become a specialist in several policy forms, including contractor’s pollution liability, architects and engineers, contractor’s professional liability and owner’s protective professional indemnity.
“Bill has been integral to the growth of our business, especially across the Northwestern U.S.,” said Jeff Slivka, president of RT ECP. “Over the past four years, his in-depth knowledge of the construction marketplace and his ability to provide owners and industry professionals with risk management solutions align directly with our goal of becoming the industry’s premier environmental and construction-related professional liability insurance resource.”
Prior to the RT ECP team, Webb held senior management and underwriting positions with Marsh’s financial and professional liability national practice for architects, engineers and contractor’s professional liability, as well as All Risks Ltd., Lexington Insurance Co. and AON Affinity.
The Lansdale, Pennsylvania, resident holds a bachelor’s degree in insurance, risk management and marketing from Temple University’s Fox School of Business and Management, according to a news release. He has also achieved the Registered Professional Liability Underwriter designation and the Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist designation.
