This month, we welcomed Bryon to Hospitality Insurance Group as our new Commercial Lines Territory Manager based at our headquarters in Southborough, Massachusetts. Get to know Bryon in our latest Q&A interview below.
What is your full name?
When is your birthday?
Where do you live?
Tell us a little bit about your background.
I’ve worked in the insurance industry for over 20 years (time flies!) My insurance career began in the mailroom at Liberty Mutual in NJ during college and progressed into various claims and underwriting roles over the years. My most recent experience includes senior field underwriting positions at Nationwide Insurance and Utica National.
What brought you to Hospitality Insurance Group?
I’m a foodie at heart and really like socializing over good food and drinks with friends and family. I’ve enjoyed working hospitality accounts over my years as a generalist underwriter and have always wanted to work more of this business. I was intrigued by the opportunity to join HIG and very impressed by the leadership vision for the future. We are going to do great things together!
Do you hold any industry certifications?
My CPCU is in progress.
Since we’re in the hospitality business, what is your favorite drink of choice to order when out with friends? (cocktail, beer, wine, etc.)
This is an easy question for me! My favorite spirits are Campari and Gin; so it will have to be a Negroni.
What is your favorite restaurant in your area?
With the closing of Blue Ginger, Bocado in Wellesley has quickly become a new favorite. Each meal is like an adventure and it doesn’t hurt that they also make a great variation of the Negroni!
What do you enjoy doing most in your spare time?
My 2 kids, wife and I enjoy exploring — we’ve been on road trips throughout the East coast and take lots of local weekend “adventures” to museums, beaches, and parks.
If you could go to any Boston sporting event, what would it be? (Boston Bruins, Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics)
Being a long time Penguins fan I always look forward to a Pens Bruins matchup. I have some great memories of Mario Lemieux and Ray Bourque playing on the ice together.
Tell us something that makes you unique or something wacky, yet interesting about you?
Besides making animal balloons for my kids and their friends, I really have a passion for cooking; Braised short ribs, chicken piccata and Asparagus wrapped in spinach crepes with béchamel sauce are the real crowd pleasers.
How can people reach you?
