A 30-year veteran of the New York insurance industry, Motherway will be responsible for the management of Conner Strong & Buckelew's commercial property and casualty operations, including business development, with a focus on the construction and real estate development sectors.
"There are few people in our industry with Bill's breadth and depth of experience in the property and casualty space and, more specifically, the construction industry," said Michael Tiagwad, President and CEO of Conner Strong & Buckelew. "Having someone of his caliber lead our New York operations ensures that we consistently bring the highest levels of knowledge and experience to our clients."
