Bridge Specialty Group, launched in February by Brown & Brown, has named Anurag Batta as the company’s new chief operating officer (COO).
Batta brings more than 20 years of strategic and operational leadership experience, Bridge Specialty Group stated. In his new role, he will oversee operational transformation and profitable growth, working closely with the company’s president, Stephen M. Boyd.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Anurag to the Bridge Specialty team as our COO,” Boyd said. “His leadership, experience and insights will prove invaluable as we look to expand further our product and delivery platform for our agency partners.”
Before joining Bridge Specialty Group, Batta served as COO of Zurich North America, where he led strategy, business transformation, innovation, customer experience, data and analytics, corporate communications and marketing.
Bridge Specialty Group was launched by Brown & Brown this year to encompass its broad portfolio of wholesale insurance businesses.
