Today we are all celebrating. And no, not because summer is finally here (although we’re pretty happy about that, too!). Ten years ago today, White Mountains Insurance Group bought the former CGNU’s U.S. property-casualty operations and renamed the company OneBeacon. The OneBeacon name was the result of a contest: three employees submitted the winning entry “OneBeacon,” reflecting the address of our longtime corporate headquarters or as more affectionately known, our “home office.”
Today, we’re a reinvigorated, specialty insurance company, excited about our future and proud of our past accomplishments. Join us in acknowledging this happy milestone. Happy tenth anniversary to everyone in the OneBeacon family—and here’s to many more!
