OneBeacon appoints crop president from QBE


Bermuda-based OneBeacon has appointed Elliot Konschak, formerly of QBE, as president of OneBeacon crop insurance.

He will report to executive vice president and chief risk officer Paul Brehm.

Konschak brings over 20 years of crop insurance experience to OneBeacon, gained at several specialty carriers.

He was most recently senior vice president of underwriting at QBE NAU, the company's crop division.

Through its relationship with The Climate Corporation, OneBeacon is authorised to provide multi-peril crop insurance through the federal crop insurance program administered by the US Department of Agriculture's risk management agency.

Brehm says, "We are very excited to have Elliot join our management team. His substantial experience across all facets of the crop insurance industry makes him uniquely qualified to lead our newest business. We look forward to building on our momentum in the crop segment, in partnership with The Climate Corporation."
