BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Kaufman MGU creates professional liability division

Michael Muglia

RB Jones Inc., a managing general underwriting unit of H.W. Kaufman Group, said Tuesday it has created a professional liability division, RB Jones Professional.

Michael Muglia will be the new unit’s director. He was previously national underwriting director, professional liability, for Kaufman’s Burns & Wilcox national underwriting unit, according to a statement. He will report to RB Jones Managing Director Mark Engel.

The new unit will immediately introduce several programs, including ProConstruct, which provides professional liability coverage to a broad range of construction professionals. Further expansion of professional products is planned for the coming months, the statement said.

Burns & Wilcox won Business Insurance’s 2022 U.S. Insurance Award for underwriting team of the year based on the ProConstruct program.

RB Jones said last month it is introducing a solar commercial insurance program for developers, independent power producers and small utility companies.
