Key Staff


The Walnut Advisory Corporation has assembled a highly praised, robust underwriting team over the last ten years under the direction of Ariel Hessing. Walnut’s focus in program business requires an adherence to underwriting profitability and a bottom line philosophical rationale. This group of underwriters works within that philosophy each and every day. Ariel Hessing’s focus on changing Walnut into a full niche Managing General Underwriter allowed the agency to change with the industry itself, which has seen the emergence of a very strong and growing MGU segment. The industry’s use of new technology and analysis of big data have contributed to this emergence, and Walnut has taken advantage of these innovations to narrow its focus to profitable niches where they have expertise. Walnut Advisory has operated in the ‘Residential Real Estate Multi-Unit Habitational’ and ‘Limited Service Hotel’ classes for twelve years, having served the last ten years as a ‘Managing General Underwriter’ and ‘Program Administrator’ for these classes of business.

Ariel Hessing earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from St. John’s College of Insurance and later a JD degree from New York University. For six years, Ariel worked for The Hartford Insurance Company, underwriting large property, and then for seven years for The Travelers, underwriting various lines of insurance for Fortune 500 Companies. After attending law school, Ariel worked for a defense litigation law firm in Roseland New Jersey from 2002 to 2004. In late 2004, Ariel joined The Walnut Advisory Corporation and began to steer Walnut Advisory in the direction of program business, principally for commercial real estate and lawyers professional liability lines.
