OneBeacon Financial Services recently held their annual all-team meeting down in Nashville, Tennessee to look at the year ahead, and reflect on their 2019 accomplishments. The two-day meeting included presentations from the specialty and P&C underwriting teams, in addition to hearing from key business partners. It was also a great forum for open discussion around industry trends and new business ideas.
Not only did they say goodbye 2019, but they bid farewell to a long-time colleague and friend, Keith Fruechte. To celebrate his retirement, the team made their way to downtown Nashville for dinner, and caught a show at the historic Grand Ole Opry, where country artists such as Rascal Flatts performed. It’s not a goodbye, but a see you later and best of luck to Keith!
