LONDON, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Chubb today announced the launch of a new Media Industry Practice for the UK and Ireland. This latest addition to Chubb's existing suite of Industry Practices is aimed at Middle Market and multinational businesses, bringing together Chubb's specialist capabilities in underwriting, claims management and multinational servicing into one client-focused proposition.
Chubb's Media Industry Practice has been launched in response to segment growth and feedback from key broker partners. Aligned with Chubb's multiline and multinational experience, the Practice will also leverage Chubb's other Property and Casualty specialisms.
The Media Industry Practice offering includes a range of bespoke coverages for media liability, cyber, property and casualty as well as personal accident and travel.

Target clients are companies operating in advertising, public relations, brand development and publishing - including newspapers and magazines - as well as film, TV and radio broadcasting.
The Media Industry Practice vision is backed by an enhanced proposition which includes specialist underwriters, dedicated account engineers and Media claims specialists, all underpinned by Chubb's global presence and local knowledge.
In line with Chubb's other Industry Practices – Technology, Life Science, Entertainment and Real Estate, the Media practice will fall under the responsibility of Karen Strong, Head of Industry Practices. The proposition also benefits from a bespoke underwriting team led by Siân Rolfe, UK and Ireland Media Manager.
