Independent medical professional liability insurance broker, Keane Insurance Group, is expanding nationally by adding an office in the Los Angeles area and putting one of its long-time brokers in place to launch the new operation. Matt Thomson, who has been with Keane since 2004, opened the doors on June 1, 2014 and will head up operations as well as focus on new business growth on the West Coast.
Thomson has consistently been one of the top producers in the Keane Group’s corporate headquarters in St. Louis, and he says he is ready for this new challenge. “I’m looking forward to working more closely with our clients on the West Coast and working to expand our presence out here,” commented Thomson. The new location is at 19800 Mac Arthur Blvd., Irvine, CA 92612. The Keane Group also has offices in Kansas City, Chicago, and Austin, TX.
Founder and President of the Keane Group, John Keane, says that opening an office in California fits with the agency’s overall growth strategy. “Having one of the largest physician populations in the country, a growing Keane client base, and the headquarters of many of our key carrier partners, we felt it important that we have a physical presence in California,” Keane remarked. “The advantage to having a local presence is that we will have easy access to some of our carrier’s headquarters and availability to our growing client base in the state,” he continued. Keane also added that they are seriously considering opening another location in the Pacific Northwest in the near future.
The Keane Group (keanegroup.com) sells medical professional liability insurance and works with many of the top malpractice insurance companies in California including The Doctors Company and NORCAL. According to Thomson, offering additional benefits and services to physicians is what sets Keane apart from competitors. In addition to malpractice insurance, Keane provides a $3,000, 000 lump sum disability insurance designed specifically for physicians, coverage for HIPAA and cyber liability risks, HR resources, and encrypted mobile texting for healthcare providers.
