Valiant Insurance Group Invests in the Future: Relocates New York City Home Office to Larger Space, Continues to Recruit Team of Top Insurance Professionals

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - For many companies, the search for profitability and growth has been stymied by the faltering economy and the continuing lackluster marketplace. Cost-cutting has endangered the retention and recruitment of talent. Throughout it all, Valiant Insurance Group ("Valiant") has pursued expansion in a disciplined and controlled fashion, adding talented professionals to its staff month after month to ensure that clients, agents and brokers receive the kinds of products and services they need to survive these difficult times.

Today, Valiant announced that it will be expanding its New York City Headquarters and will be relocating to larger space at 110 William Street, New York, NY. The new offices will accommodate roughly double the existing workforce and are expected to provide sufficient space for up to three years.

"Despite challenging economic conditions, we've enjoyed several years of great success building out our U.S. organization," says Gary Dubois, President and Chief Executive Officer of Valiant. "As a result, this move to larger space will allow us to further develop the resources and personnel to continue effectively serving our agents, brokers and client policyholders."

Valiant has made a strong name for itself within a relatively short period of time in the U.S. specialty lines insurance marketplace. "Many insurance organizations are scaling back, retrenching or otherwise restructuring right now. This upheaval creates dislocation and an unsettled operating environment. Top people want to work at a place where they can demonstrate their skills and talent. We've been able to take advantage of the situation and have been highly successful in attracting the most talented people out there," notes Mr. Dubois.
