Houston, TX, October 16, 2014– Atlantic Specialty Lines (ASL), a wholesale broker and specialty lines MGA offering a variety of property, casualty, auto, professional, and personal lines coverages, is announcing a major addition to their Houston office. Looking to solidify their position in the Texas market ASL will be bringing on Suzy Popplewell-Baird to manage the territory.
Suzy, a 32-year veteran of the insurance industry, will not only bring years of experience, most recently as a MGA Underwriter, but she knows the region and the issues it faces on a daily basis. She started her career working for the AIG Energy office in Houston and eventually made her way to Alaska where she served on the Alaskan Independent Agents & Brokers Board of Directors for 5 years. Suzy was awarded the AAMGA Achievement Award from the AIIAB for two consecutive years. Her areas of expertise include Package, Liquor Liability, Garage, Transportation, Environmental, Oil and Gas and Excess/Umbrella Coverage.
Seth Johnson, COO at ASL, says “Bringing Suzy on board to lead our aggressive growth plan in Texas was an easy decision. Her underwriting experience, market knowledge, energy and leadership capabilities make her the right person for the job. We are excited to have Suzy as a part of the team and look forward to the coming years.”
