Don Barrand, V3’s senior vice president and transportation national practice leader, will be managing this new insurance program, along with Brad Stubbendieck, V3’s vice president.

    The email above did not work.

    We currently write a business that rents vans, pickups and cars – all under 20,000. Is this a risk you would write? Some of vehicles do carry physical damage if there is still a bank loan on the vehicle. Is this a risk you would write? Do you have an application?
