HUB International Names Neils Ludlow Vice President at Westlake Village Office

Neils F. Ludlow has been named vice president, commercial lines, property and casualty at the Westlake Village office of HUB International Insurance Services Inc.

In his role as vice president, Ludlow is responsible for cultivating new clients and nurturing existing ones as well as they are properly insured.  

Previous to his nearly 10-year tenure with HUB, Ludlow owned an insurance agency for three years and was also in the construction, landscape and apparel industries. 

“Neils’s experience as a business owner gives him the ability to put insurance jargon into easy-to-understand words for clients. He’s great at helping them look at risk and exposure and the cost of insurance, the likelihood of something happening versus the severity,” said Certified Insurance Counselor Stan Darrow.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
