Ft. Lauderdale-based MHG Insurance Brokers has hired Madelaine Acosta as an account executive with its business insurance division. She will quote workers’ comp, marine general liability, general liability and commercial auto inquiries to new U.S. clients, in addition to supporting current clients.

Acosta has worked in the insurance industry in South Florida for more than eight years, including owning a small insurance agency that specialized in multimillion-dollar coverage policies for luxury yachts circumnavigating the globe.

“We’re so fortunate to have found Madelaine,” said Janine Jeffries, MHG’s business insurance division leader. “Being bilingual, she is a perfect fit for working with our international clients. Madelaine’s entrepreneurial experience and excellent client references will intensify our department growth. We’re really glad she has joined our team.”

MHG Insurance Brokers has provided business insurance since 2010 and specializes in hard-to-place insurance coverage for businesses with unusual or difficult risks, high losses, lapses in coverage or dangerous exposures.
