Torus Unveils New eCommerce Division Centralizes delivery and development of online specialty offering

Torus, the global specialty insurer, has formed a new division – Torus eCommerce – to centralize the delivery and development of its award-winning online ESCAPE broker portals, which streamline the quote-to-bind-to-issue process for U.S. wholesalers serving America’s small business marketplace.

With an increasing number of brokers transacting business through the ESCAPE portals, which currently include ESCAPE Excess Casualty, ESCAPE Healthcare and ESCAPE Miscellaneous Professional Liability, Torus’ eCommerce division will enhance the company’s underwriting support and service while strengthening product and feature development for users.

The new team is led by Head of eCommerce, Linc Trimble. He is supported by the original leader of ESCAPE for Excess Liability, Kevin Mooney; Brian Blessing, Director of eCommerce Business Development; Kardiner Cadet, IT/Architecture; Dan Dijak, New Product Development, and Nina Lim, Underwriting Services Team Leader, among others.

“Torus’ suite of ESCAPE products provide the specialty coverage wholesale brokers require for their SME customers and the fast and easy-to-use automation brokers need to more efficiently and profitably handle their business,” said Mr. Trimble. “The ESCAPE system is revolutionizing the way small business insurance is transacted and the creation of a dedicated eCommerce team will allow us to further enhance and grow our online offerings for the select wholesalers we work with.”
