As Wells Media Group continues to add quality content to its recently launched website,, focusing on a target audience of property/casualty insurance industry executives, the publisher also announces the signing of its second charter Carrier Management sponsor, Quadrant Information Services. launched on Feb. 22, with a website and daily e-newsletter that serves P/C insurance company boards of directors and C-suite officers of all carrier functions (CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, CROs, CTOs, and others)—providing information, data, news and exclusive articles authored by their industry peers, external consultants, researchers, analysts, academics, policymakers, other thought-leaders and veteran insurance industry journalists.

Content highlights for the first week included the following articles:

The list is just a sample of what is already on the website—and what’s ahead, according to Susanne Sclafane, Carrier Management’s senior editor and Andy Simpson, the vice president of content for Wells Media Group. They note that the website and newsletters will feature how-to articles from p/c industry experts, executive interviews and insights on p/c insurance leadership and management covering topics such as: strategic planning, financial issues, talent management, brand management, claims and reserving trends, reinsurance, capital management strategies, investment trends and strategies, the use of technology and predictive analytics, emerging torts, growth initiatives, and the economy.

Mitch Dunford, chief executive officer of Wells Media, notes that the site is not intended to capture a huge audience. Instead, it is targeting the information needs of a niche insurance executive market numbered in the 10,000 range, he says, noting that is intended to be a sister site to Well’s flagship publication, Insurance Journal, which also serves agents, brokers and other industry professionals.
