In effort to ensure we are the insurance company of choice for environmental insurance brokers, it is important we establish a strong and dynamic team.

“The insurance field has interested me for years now. It offers the opportunity to work with different clients and see projects through to the end, allowing you to observe the growth and contributions to the overall submission strategy.”

Dan enjoys the team’s collaborative approach of constructively critiquing and recognizing valuable submission opportunities for the business.

“I look forward to applying my knowledge while learning more about underwriting and the environmental sector.”

In order to properly grow our division’s infrastructure, it is important to invest not only in skilled insurance team members, but also seek talent in the technical aspect of the environmental field. With more than seven years of technical experience, we are excited for Dan to apply his environmental intelligence to the underwriting side of the business.

Dan, along with the team of the experts at Great American Environmental Division, can uncover the hidden risks in your clients’ operations and develop a custom program to help protect them. Great American Environmental Division offers a complete portfolio of environmental insurance products, including contractor’s and fixed premises pollution liability insurance that work across the U.S., U.S. territories, Canada and other select countries.
