“This is the first step in combining our strengths to create the most responsive team for our clients,” remarked Thomas Harmeyer, the group’s Executive Chairman. “As businesses face an ever accelerating pace of change, we are forging a new path to address their emerging risks.”
“Our tech and cyber solutions have always been market-leading,” said Mr. Robin. “Now, that same energy and drive for innovation is spread throughout all of our lines of business, responding to increasing demand from our clients and setting the bar higher for the industry.”
The Cyber & Professional Lines Group’s leadership team is comprised of the following:

In addition to the new group’s formation, the Cyber & Professional Lines Group has introduced several new product and service improvements.
“Tokio Marine HCC’s ‘Q’ is the new online broker portal for quoting and issuing policies for the Cyber & Professional Lines Group,” commented Jamie Kinsley, the group’s Senior Vice President of Technology and Product Management. “Brokers want to be able to do business 24/7 and accelerate their level of service to their customers. So, we’ve evolved NAS’ online platform and encourage all of our brokers to sign up and quote it on Q!” To register for the portal, please visit www.tokiomarinehcc.com/q.
The Cyber & Professional Lines Group’s advancements also expand to its carrier service business.
“Over 20 years ago, we began to develop bolt-on specialty solutions for other carriers that we offered on a reinsurance basis,” stated Mr. Sherman. “Today, our solutions reinforce other carriers’ core products with new bolt-on coverages without the costs and risks of introducing these solutions themselves.” Tokio Marine HCC has over 90 carrier solutions currently in market, ranging from Cyber to EPL programs among medical professional liability carriers, BOP carriers and a host of personal lines carriers.
