Universal Insurance Programs, a Phoenix-based provider of specialty-insurance programs for self-storage and other industries, has hired Chris Betteridge as executive producer. Betteridge has more than six years of experience in property insurance. He’ll specialize in new business opportunities for the firm’s specialty programs and play a fundamental role in assisting clients with their insurance and risk-management needs, according to a company press release.
Betteridge graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in construction management. Originally from Chicago, he’s lived in Scottsdale, Ariz., with his wife for 10 years.
Universal Insurance Programs was formed in November 2015 after principals from Paul Hanson Partners, an insurance-program administrator serving the transportation industry, acquired a majority interest in Universal Insurance Facilities Ltd., a Phoenix-based company founded in 1992.
