Wiseman stepped into the surety territory manager role in May after long-tenured service at large national carriers, including the last seven years in an underwriting directorship role. 

“Michael is a strong addition to our team of surety professionals,” adds Richmann. “We are excited to have him lead what had been a geographical gap in the Carolinas.”

This expansion of UFG Surety comes only a year after the division of UFG Insurance extended its footprint in Virginia, Florida and the northwestern U.S. by adding seasoned surety veterans to its team.

“This is an exciting time for UFG Surety with the addition of another talented individual to our team,” says Kyanna Saylor, AVP, surety marketing. “Our team’s ability to focus on delivering exceptional service is being strengthened by continuous collaboration and technological advancements. This reinforces our commitment to being responsive, trusted and knowledgeable to the needs of our clients.”

UFG has been in the surety bonds industry since 1952 and works with independent agents across the country. For more information, visit ufginsurance.com/surety or call 800-332-7977.
