Eastwood perpetuating Lexington’s leadership role in innovation

DALLAS, TX, June 30, 2011 — Peter Eastwood, President and CEO of Lexington Insurance, will deliver a keynote presentation at MarketScout’s fifth annual Entrepreneurial Insurance Symposium, outlining changing exposures created by alternative energy sources, green projects, governmental intervention, securitization, nanotechnology, innovative coverage forms and product developments.

According to Richard Kerr, CEO of MarketScout, “The registrants at the Entrepreneurial Symposium are seasoned insurance executives who have heard it all, so having Peter as a keynote speaker is right on target. He has the breadth of experience and reputation to capture the respect of our registrants. Peter is a real draw for the symposium.”

The National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research has partnered with MarketScout for the 2011 symposium. As a result, certified insurance counselor (CIC) and certified risk manager (CRM) attendees can secure hours necessary to meet the update provisions required to maintain designations.

Symposium registrants will also vote on the ultimate winners of the 2011 Entrepreneurial Awards. The 12 finalists will profile their innovations at the symposium via a shark tank-type presentation to the registrants and the judges’ panel. A winner for each category of underwriting, distribution and technology will be named during the symposium. Candidates with an innovative idea may apply until August 15, 2011 at www.einsurancesymposium.com.
