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. Each issue of Environmental Insider will introduce you to members of our team and describe the unique role they play to support you and your clients.

Great American Insurance Group’s Environmental Division welcomes Sarah Brown to its National Underwriting department as an Underwriter. In her role, Sarah will focus on generating new business while enhancing existing opportunities. Through marketing efforts, technical analysis, and maintaining service standards, she will strive to provide superior environmental coverage to clients.

Sarah earned her bachelor’s degree in environmental science with a focus in hydrology and geography from Keene State College. Sarah’s passion for environmental awareness started while performing water sampling research throughout college. By completing field and inquiry-based projects in the regional setting, she gained knowledge and developed skills in investigating environmental issues and formulating solutions.

In 2013 Sarah had the opportunity to participate in an environmental river pollution study in South Africa. Through her study abroad, she executed a geographical survey related to the effects of flooding on the livelihoods of the township of Imizamo Yethu, conducted a water pollution study on the Liesbeek River of Cape Town, and provided English language and mathematics academic support to ESOL students at the provincial capital's Students' Health and Welfare Centers Organization.

After graduation, Sarah began her career as a Claims Technician for a financial service company, where she assisted in reviewing data and collecting records for claim adjustments. Most recently, Sarah served as an environmental underwriter, with a leading multinational finance and insurance corporation, working across contractor pollution and casualty product lines and successfully building relationships throughout the northeast region.

“I’m looking forward to my future here at Great American. The family-like culture makes a huge difference when collaborating on a day-to-day basis,” said Sarah.

Sarah is excited for upcoming networking opportunities and to continue developing in her new role. “The added services and resources provided, accompanied by our underwriting expertise is what makes Great American such a successful carrier.”

Sarah, 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.

Welcome, Sarah! We are excited to watch you succeed in your new role!
