Valhalla, NY (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
USI Insurance Services (“USI”) announced today the appointment of Arthur W. Hall to senior vice president, employee benefits practice leader, as part of the Company’s strategic vision to become the number one middle market insurance brokerage firm in the United States. Hall was previously the chief executive officer of Emerson Reid (“ER”), USI's benefits wholesale operation which is headquartered in New York City. He will work closely with a cabinet of key employee benefits leaders and resources throughout the USI network to refine and execute on the Company’s winning employee benefits model.
Michael J. Sicard, USI’s chairman, president and CEO, said: “Arthur has more than twenty years of strategic, innovative and consultative leadership in the employee benefits industry. He brings a unique combination of vision, client focus, unrelenting drive and passion to every position he has held. His ability to lead large scale business transformation efforts and grow the marketplace resulted in Emerson Reid becoming the largest employee benefit wholesaler in the Northeast tri-state area, making him the ideal person to assume this new role at USI leading our national employee benefits practice.”
Many of Hall’s responsibilities at Emerson Reid will be assumed by George A. Rosiak who has been named ER’s president, and Isadore R. Baseman, who has been named its executive vice president. Hall will continue to have an active role in ER’s finance and strategy areas.
Hall has been the chief executive officer of Emerson Reid since 2002, joining USI through its acquisition in 1998. While there, he held several positions in marketing and sales until ultimately leading the benefits wholesale organization. Hall began his career as a disability sales specialist in the Long Island, New York market with Paul Revere Insurance in 1992. After three successful years, he joined C&B Consulting group and help found the medical General Agency division.
