Media and Entertainment Pros Reveal How They Hire Insurance Companies

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 8, 2011) - Successful entertainment insurance firms like Tanenbaum Harber Insurance Group continue to grow their business in today's unstable market with ProductionHUB's Request Engine.

Joseph Lucas, Vice President of Film and Video for Lucas Production Inc. was working on a pilot for Sony Pictures Domestic, a drama show wrapped around a "reality" fight show. Finding top insurance companies was crucial for the project to develop. Lucas stumbled upon the Request Engine on, which allowed him to submit a free, simple form detailing his project needs. Within 24 hours, he had several email responses from relevant insurance companies wanting his business.

"I have to say that the vendors I met from ProductionHUB were all very pleasant and easy to work with," Lucas says.

Lucas met Carol Bressi-Cilona, the Director of Entertainment Insurance & Special Programs for Tanenbaum Harber Insurance Group.

"I had a very specific policy that I needed written and Carol pointed me in the right direction... I truly enjoyed working with ProductionHUB's Request Engine and will absolutely use it again for future freelance / project needs."

Companies such as ESPN, Discovery Channel, Harpo and Disney are just a few who regularly use ProductionHUB to hire future employees. While the power of ProductionHUB has been no secret within the media & entertainment industry for the past decade, usage by professionals in other fields, like entertainment insurance, has grown immensely this past year.

"It's a wonderful tool for seasoned professionals and industry newcomers alike." Mugdan is one of thousands who find the ProductionHUB Request Engine service useful for her business.
