Westfield Expands Commercial Operations to MD


Westfield Insurance has expanded its commercial operations into the state of Maryland, with commercial accounts to be serviced out of the Lancaster, Pa., service office. The company’s existing surety accounts in Maryland will continue to be serviced out of the Richmond, Va., service office.

To assist agency partners in submitting new business, Krystin Wilson, middle market field manager, Wayne Gearhart, regional claims leader, and Cindy Roberts-Tamm, risk control representative, are onsite and available.

Westfield has recently appointed 13 independent agencies to facilitate the expansion. Agents representing Westfield are carefully selected for their professionalism, knowledge, integrity, and commitment to their important role as a partner with Westfield and its policyholders.

"We decided to expand operations to Maryland because of the significant opportunity to diversify and grow in businesses, markets and products," said Rich Gajda, Westfield commercial lines leader. "Adding Maryland to Westfield’s operations brings further variety to our book of business, spreading risk across a larger geographical footprint."
