RT Specialty Hires Industry Veteran Jonathan Legge
July 9, 2018, CHICAGO, IL – R-T Specialty, LLC is pleased to announce the hiring of industry veteran Jonathan Legge as a Senior Vice President of its RT ProExec division. Jon will assume leadership of RT ProExec’s Transactional Liability and Private Equity Practice.
Jon began his career with American International Group in 1992, moved to the brokerage side in 1996 with Johnson & Higgins and onto Marsh when they purchased J&H in 1997. At Marsh, Jon held positions of increasing authority culminating as the leader of its FINPRO global private equity practice. Of note, while at Marsh, Jon placed one of the first, if not the first, U.S. reps and warranties policies. In 2008, Jon co-founded Vanbridge where he developed numerous insurance products focused on the private equity space and continued to broker transactional liability programs. He brings a wealth of experience, technical expertise and relationships in these lines of business.
RT ProExec Co-President Alex Jezerski, Jr. commented, “With the growing importance of private equity to the economy, we want to ensure that we are well positioned to continue to exhibit thought leadership and product innovation in this space. Jon is a recognized leader in this area and will be responsible for expanding our private equity practice and for further enhancing our presence in the transactional liability segment. We believe that there is a significant need in the market for additional expertise not only in the representations and warranties line of coverage, but also in the less well-known tax liability and loss mitigation coverages.”
Jon can be reached at (212) 314-9629 and firstname.lastname@example.org
