Thomas F.X. Hodson has accepted a position as general counsel for New Jersey-based SOBC Corp.

SOBC has a licensed Connecticut-based sponsored cell captive and provides risk financing, management, and claims services for portfolio transfers of small books of business currently exiting the market.

"Tom has been instrumental in the continued growth of JLT Towner and has helped to develop Connecticut as a respected captive insurance domicile," said Guy Ragosta, JLT Towner chief executive officer and president, as quoted in a JLT Towner press release. "We wish Tom the very best in his new position and look forward to working with him on captive opportunities in the future."
