CHICAGO, ILL., March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Specialist insurer Beazley has appointed Eric Rosenblum to underwrite pollution legal liability business emanating from the Midwest and West of the United States. He will underwrite business under Beazley's fixed site pollution product ECLIPSE®, designed specifically for transactions and redevelopment projects involving brownfield and contaminated sites.

Mr Rosenblum has over seventeen years' experience underwriting environmental business, and for the last ten years he was Senior Environmental Underwriter at Chubb Environmental Solutions in Chicago.

Jayne Cunningham, environmental global focus leader at Beazley said: "We are delighted to welcome Eric to the team. He brings a wealth of experience, is highly respected in the industry, and has exceptional industry insight and contacts.

"Specialist pollution cover for brownfield and contamination sites is much in demand, particular in areas like the Midwest, where historic manufacturing and industrial centers have seen a decline in business. There are a number of programs proposed to encourage redevelopment of these areas, and with Eric on board we have significantly bolstered our capability to underwrite these risks."
