Gov. Walker to Visit Berkshire Hathaway, Salute Job Growth
For the City-Times
Gov. Scott Walker will salute Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection and for its nearly 300 percent job growth over the last three years during his tour of the company today.
The governor on Wednesday afternoon will tour BHTP’s headquarters and the newly renovated annex with BHTP President John Noel and various local officials, then speak with employees and take questions at the annex.
Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection was created in 2009, when Noel took the remnants of Travel Guard, the company he founded and sold to AIG, and reorganized it as the Noel Group.
In January 2014, Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance, a division of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate, bought the assets of the Noel Group’s two key companies, MyAssist and Insure America. In May 2014, Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection was launched.
The company currently markets AirCare™ Travel Protection nationwide, and will be launching more products over the next several months.
