Mariners General Insurance Group Adds New Region and Veteran Staff, Anticipates Further Expansion in 2014 with Possible Acquisitions Eyed
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Mariners General Insurance Group, a highly respected company in
operation for more than 50 years, has recently expanded into Northern
California and is anticipating further expansion later this year,
according to Founder and President Byron Chamberlain.
The Newport Beach-based company, well-established in the Southern
California boating community, serves clients from its longstanding
Newport Beach location and its second California office in San Diego.
Northern California boaters always have been part of Mariners' client
mix, but the San Francisco Bay marine community now will enjoy enhanced
personal attention with the addition of Carolyn Pounds, based in Alameda
with more than 20 years experience in marine insurance. Mariners General
Insurance Group continues to have a strong presence in Florida, serving
customers from Bradenton, and in the Pacific Northwest.
"We have been in business for 50 plus years and seen ebbs and flows in
our industry, mostly based on the overall economy. I'm pleased that 2014
looks to be a strong year in our industry and our entire team, from west
coast to east coast, looks forward to serving our customers as they
insure their valuable vessels," said Chamberlain.
"We have added six new employees recently and are planning for growth,
partly organic and partly from acquiring companies with strong books of
business in our existing areas as well as regions we are not yet
serving. Annapolis, MD, Washington state and Florida, are potential
targets," Chamberlain continued.
