Glenn Dorr has been appointed director of the Northeast region at Lloyd’s America.  

Dorr joins Lloyd’s from HCC Specialty, where he was senior vice president. He has more than 20 years of experience in the standard and surplus lines segments in the US and overseas.

Lloyd’s America says Dorr will be based in the Boston area and will be responsible for market development activities in an 11-state region stretching from Maryland to Maine, and Washington D.C. Lloyd’s stakeholders in this region include retail, wholesale & reinsurance brokers, program managers, MGA’s, risk managers and the organizations that support them.

“My first priority will be to introduce myself to the many Lloyd’s stakeholders in the Northeast, including brokers, MGA’s, MGU’s and the universities whose risk management programs are preparing the next generation of industry professionals,” says Dorr, in a statement. “As a member of the Lloyd’s America team, I’m a local resource focused on ensuring that Lloyd’s is understood and accessible to everyone with a current or potential future relationship with the Market.”   

Hank Watkins, president of Lloyd’s America says Dorr’s arrival is an “important next step in an ongoing process of ensuring that our activities on behalf of the managing agents and London-based brokers support their continued success in Lloyd’s largest market.”

The Northeast region is one of four established by Lloyd’s America in late 2010. As a leading provider of natural catastrophe capacity in this part of the country, Lloyd’s also writes a wide range of management liability, professional liability and other specialty lines on an open market basis and through binding authorities extended to more than 200 coverholders.
