Specialty insurance company RLI has appointed Thomas Huber as the new assistant vice president of its RLI Fidelity group.

Mr Huber will be responsible for developing and managing a profitable book of commercial crime business. He was most recently employed by CNA, where he served as the underwriting director and managed the commercial crime book of business.

Michael Beranek, vice president of RLI Fidelity, said: Tom’s knowledge base is just one more reason our producers will find it easier to do business with RLI. He has advised corporate management teams on industry trends and product positioning within their lines of business, and has co-authored an industry thought piece on the role of fidelity in the international marketplace.
