Westfield expands commercial operations to WI


WESTFIELD CENTER, OHIO, March 15, 2011 – Westfield Insurance, an Ohio-based insurance carrier, has expanded its commercial operations into the state of Wisconsin, with commercial accounts to be serviced out of a new service office in Milwaukee. The company’s surety accounts in Wisconsin will continue to be serviced out of the St. Charles, Ill., service office.

To assist agency partners in submitting new business, Laura Gibson, mid-market field manager, Sharon Zraik, mid-market underwriting assistant, Dean Crowley, senior claims leader, and Mike Danisewicz, senior risk control representative, are onsite and available.

Westfield also recently appointed nine independent agencies to facilitate in 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.

"Expanding into Wisconsin provides us with a significant opportunity to diversify and grow in businesses, markets and products," said Paul Schnebele, Westfield commercial lines leader. "Adding Wisconsin to Westfield’s operations brings further variety to our book of business, spreading risk across a larger geographical footprint."
