Marine Team Transitions at Roanoke
We are excited to announce responsibility changes for two marine team members in Roanoke’s Long Beach, California office. Effective January 1, 2017, Manny Hernandez has assumed the role of Senior Underwriter based on his consistent, prudent underwriting and deep understanding of transportation-related risks. We have no doubt that Manny’s twenty-nine plus years of insurance experience will play an instrumental role in continuing to grow and shape our marine program.
Also effective January 1, 2017, we are happy to report that Jon Diverio has assumed the Marine Manager position in Roanoke’s Long Beach office. With over eight years of dedicated service, Jon has earned this position through his firm grasp of marine underwriting and responsiveness to client needs. By turning Jon’s attention to Roanoke Trade’s marine operations, we expect our clients to benefit from his energy and enthusiasm.
Please join us in congratulating both Jon and Manny on their new responsibilities and wishing them all the best in 2017!

Career Transitions at Roanoke
Several career transitions are currently in the works at Roanoke and we are excited to announce that effective August 1st, Glenn Patton, Regional Vice President of our Long Beach office, is relocating to our corporate office in Schaumburg, IL. Mr. Patton has accepted the newly created position of Vice President, National Sales Management. Glenn’s expertise is rooted in sales and business development.
Glenn’s vacancy on the west coast will be filled by Dave Jordan who is assuming the role of Regional Vice President. Dave will be missed in Schaumburg as will his contributions to the surety underwriting and claims management units. We are confident that he will continue to make significant contributions in his new position in Long Beach.
