Maritime Program Group creates new division

Maritime Program Group launched a private client services division headed by new hire Timothy Boyle.

As director of private client services, Boyle will be responsible for expanding the products of the new division through the MPG network of brokers nationally.

"Expansion into the affluent personal lines space is a natural progression for MPG, given our long history of working with brokers who place yachts for these target clients," Maritime president Christopher Pesce said in a statement.

Boyle spent eight years as sales manager for the Marsh Private Client office in Fairfield, Conn., and most recently was sales manager for a large retail agency in White Plains, N.Y.

Maritime will be offering coverage through the three top markets in the nation for high-net-worth personal lines placements - Chartis, Chubb and Ace.

Maritime is a program administrator that provides marine insurance products and underwriting services to its broker network throughout the country.
