The Hartford launches brand new unit
The Hartford has announced the creation of its Global Specialty Digital Solutions business unit, which will focus on the digital provision of specialty and wholesale insurance products.
The Hartford has named Mark Azzolino as the head of this new unit and he will report to Adrien Robinson, the company’s head of global specialty.
Azzolino will be responsible for increasing distribution and access to the unit’s suite of digital capabilities including its Pronto portal, which allows an agent or broker to submit, quote and bind specialty wholesale products within minutes. Azzolino will also explore new partnerships with agents and brokers, as well as embedded solutions, to bolster The Hartford’s digital potential while also bringing in new specialty and whole insurance products into the digital realm.
“We have more than a dozen specialty insurance products being digitally transacted across five distinct digital channels in Global Specialty,” said Robinson. “Continuing to expand our digital capabilities will further help us to serve the evolving needs of the specialty marketplace.”
“Our customers have asked for more creative online solutions in specialty lines, and we have responded by linking across the enterprise to leverage The Hartford’s strength in online quoting and servicing to offer greater efficiency, growth and innovation to our specialty trading partners.”
