Our Ocean Marine team recently held a North American underwriting meeting in Denver, Colorado. All North American commercial marine underwriters (from the U.S. and Canada) attended. The group heard updates on the "state of the market," discussed strategy and goals and enjoyed an "Escape the Room" team building event. Unfortunately, there was no escape for any of the teams, but lots of fun had by all!
Last month, OneBeacon Government Risks’ Sarah Schmitz spent the day with her 4th grade daughter’s Girl Scout Troop at their First Responder Appreciation event for the Maple Plain, MN first responders. Supported by our Charitable Trust, items were collected for care packages to provide to their local police force, firefighters, EMTs, etc. The packages included gift cards to local restaurants, coffee, hand sanitizer, lip balm, hand warmers, snacks and homemade cards created by the Scouts.
