APCIA Appoints Kevin Kerridge, CEO of Hiscox USA, to Board of Directors
Atlanta, GA – March 21, 2022 – Hiscox, the leading small business insurer, today announced the appointment of Kevin Kerridge, Chief Executive Officer of Hiscox USA, to the Board of Directors of the American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA). APCIA is the primary US national trade association for home, auto, and business insurers.
In Kerridge’s new role as a Director of APCIA, he will build on the Association’s 150-year legacy of promoting and protecting the viability of private competition within the insurance industry for the benefit of consumers and insurers. Kerridge has also been appointed to APCIA’s ‘Board Working Group on Social Equity & Inclusion Issues’, overseeing industry initiatives to promote and expand: diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workforce, board room, and supply chains; community involvement and engagement; risk mitigation and protections; and establishing and enhancing partnerships with government and non-government organizations in underserved communities.
“As a small business owner, it can sometimes feel like David and Goliath when choosing or filing a claim with an insurer. APCIA helps to level the playing field to benefit the policyholder”, said Kerridge. “Healthy competition keeps us sharp; it inspires innovation, better products for customers and appropriate pricing. I’m excited to take a leading role in not only continuing to drive value for customers across the US, but also in promoting social equity and inclusion across the property and casualty insurance industry.”
