Alliant expands regional expertise with new office and key hires

California-based Alliant Insurance has strengthened its regional expertise with the opening of new office in Louisiana, and two new hires to lead its operations.

The new Baton Rouge office will be manned by two of the Bayou State’s property/casualty insurance experts Steve Gaffney, as senior vice president, and Scott McLaughlin as vice president.

According to the company, the office will provide a new strategic location for its Alliant Americas middle market division.

"Baton Rouge, with its diverse economy and central location, represents fertile ground for the middle market," said Bob Bennetsen, executive vice president and senior managing director, Alliant Americas. "The addition of Steve and Scott will enable us to expand our service platform and product offerings to clients in both Louisiana and across the Southeast."
