NEW, a unit of Asurion, provides some of the nation’s largest retailers with customer protection plans and device support for majaps, CE, office products, exercise equipment and other consumer goods.
“We value NEW’s long-standing partnership with The Warranty Group and Virginia Surety,” said Jason Martin, NEW’s risk and underwriting VP. “They have been a valued and trusted partner, offering coverage options for our programs that benefit our clients and their customers.”
Added Justin Thomas, senior VP at The Warranty Group: “We’re proud to continue our partnership with NEW. They have proven themselves to be an industry leader in serving the retail marketplace and we look forward to continuing to support their underwriting and actuarial needs as they grow their business.”
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
