Eastern Alliance Insurance Group (EAIG), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Eastern Insurance Holdings, has appointed Joe Adams as a new marketing executive in its Tennessee territory.

Mr Adams will be based out of EAIG’s new Franklin, Tennessee office, a satellite location of EAIG’s North Carolina regional office. Earlier this year, EAIG announced the opening of the office to service its recent expansion into the Tennessee workers’ compensation market place.

Mr Adams has more than 20 years of underwriting, marketing and management experience in Tennessee’s property and casualty insurance industry. He most recently served as a territory manager for the Liberty Mutual and Wausau Insurance companies and previously served in various roles for Travelers, Hartford Insurance and Willis.

Bruce Eckert, CEO of Eastern Insurance Holdings, said: We welcome Joe to the Eastern family of companies. His experience in commercial insurance lines and relationships in the Tennessee territory are a tremendous asset to Eastern as we extend our full line of workers’ compensation products and services to the territory.
