BOSTON, March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberty Mutual has appointed Jeff Duncan senior vice president and chief underwriting officer of its operation focused on helping healthcare providers – and the brokers who support them – better manage the total cost of risk.
In his new role Duncan will be responsible for building and profitably growing Liberty Mutual's newest operation focused on a specific industry. He will report to David Perez, executive vice president and general manager of Liberty Mutual's Commercial Insurance Specialized Units.
