In its 60 days since inception, N&J Private Insurance Services has seen glowing success. As Northrop & Johnson’s in-house insurance company, the team has been writing policies, problem-solving for its clients and making a name for themselves in the marine insurance industry.
Service, solutions and saving are the principals behind N&J Private Insurance Services. With Managing Director John Gaffney and Senior Vice President of Underwriting Laura Sherrod at the helm they provide clients with yacht insurance specializing in hull and machinery, P&I, navigation, crew medical, pollution, kidnap and ransom, new build, ship repairers’ liability program, charter cancellation, charterers liability and more. Offering 24/7 concierge-level service, John and Laura are able to assist with the immediate needs of clients.
“The past 60 days have far surpassed my expectations,” says John Gaffney, who with Laura Sherrod has signed 25 policies. “I am thoroughly impressed with the high level of expertise and cooperation from the team at Northrop & Johnson. The charter and sales brokers at Northrop & Johnson have provided us with great referrals and have been instrumental in our growing success. It is a pleasure to work with their clients to give them solutions, service and saving with their insurance,” he continues.
N&J Private Insurance Services signed their first contact during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, with Sales Broker Wes Sanford introducing the client. Shortly after, Charter and Sales Broker Steve Elario, brought the first client for the company’s bespoke trip cancellation insurance. From there the company has received numerous referrals that have led to new policies.
"Northrop & Johnson is delighted with the success of N&J Private Insurance Services and is proud to have such dedicated individuals at the helm of N&J Private Insurance Services," says COO Daniel Ziriakus.
Though they have only been a part of N&J Private Insurance Services for 60 days, John Gaffney and Laura Sherrod have 60 years combined in the insurance business. They have learned many lessons over the years that allow them to give their clients sound advice and immediate solutions. Their experience and knowledge have allowed them to take the helm of N&J Private Insurance Services and turn it into a success.
