HCC Life Insurance Company, a provider of specialty insurance specializing in writing medical stop loss and group life insurance, has opened a new office in Scottsdale, Arizona.

HCC said that the new office will provide underwriting, marketing, and administrative support to producers in Arizona and California.

The new Scottsdale location is an addition to the offices located in Dallas, Texas, Kennesaw, Georgia, Wakefield, Massachusetts, and Minnetonka, Minnesota, and will be led by the company’s recently appointed regional executive vice president Byrd Preston.

HCC Life Insurance Company president and CEO Craig Kelbel said that the company looks forward to develop the new office and enhance its business presence in Arizona and California.

“With healthcare reform and potential growth in self funded coverage, this is an opportune time for HCC Life to open this office,” Kelbel said.
