FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hallmark Financial Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:HALL) is pleased to announce the launch of our Financial Lines Group in Hallmark Pro. This new product offering targets management and professional liability needs for private, public and non-profit entities and is an important part of the continued expansion and diversification of our Professional Liability operating unit.

Hallmark Pro’s Financial Lines Group focuses on products that include Directors & Officers (D&O), Employment Practices (EPLI) and Retirement and Benefit Plan Fiduciary services for Private, Public and Non-Profit entities as well as Miscellaneous Professional Liability insurance for most non-financial institutions. These products are available on a monoline or package basis for both Primary and Excess. These new products are distributed exclusively through designated wholesale brokers.

Hallmark’s Professional Liability – Financial Lines team is led by Peter McKeegan, an accomplished financial lines professional liability specialist with 30 years of experience within the underwriting and brokerage community. Based in our Jersey City office, Mr. McKeegan can be contacted at (201) 597-6020 and pmckeegan@hallmarkgrp.com. He is joined by three accomplished underwriting professionals: Stephen Moore, Vice President, (201) 597-6021 / smoore@hallmarkgrp.com; John Birkhofer, Assistant Vice President, (201) 597-6023 / jbirkhofer@hallmarkgrp.com; and Stephanie Rubio, Senior Underwriter, (201) 597-6022 / srubio@hallmarkgrp.com. Claims will be managed by Doris Aragon, Claims Manager, (201) 253-9957 / daragon@hallmarkgrp.com.

“I’m thrilled to join Hallmark and expand our product capability within Hallmark Pro. We look to provide a more solutions-based process to our underwriting, often utilizing account specific endorsements to address the specific exposures that caused the other carriers to reject the risk,” stated Peter McKeegan, Senior Vice President of Hallmark’s Professional Liability – Financial Lines. “As such, we are generally a go-to market for accounts that have a decent story to tell, but not a very accepting audience in the market place.”
