In the spotlight


During these unsettled times, we are so grateful for those on the front lines. Much appreciation to the people – nurses and doctors, truck drivers and sanitation workers, first responders, utility and grocery store employees, and countless volunteers – who are providing care for the sick and essential services for everyone. On behalf of all of us here at Markel, thanks for everything you do.
