Environmental Team Welcomes Bjorn Gundersen
In an 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 Bjorn Gundersen to its Executive Underwriting department as an Associate Underwriter. In his new role, Bjorn will focus on relationship development and identifying broker needs to craft policies that will manage potential environmental risks. His own experiences in maintaining a consumer-centric business strategy will enable the team to develop the best possible policies for clients.
Bjorn obtained his Associate of Science in business administration from Rowan College at Gloucester County. He then went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in business studies from Stockton University, specializing in finance. Throughout his studies at Stockton, Bjorn worked for one of the largest retail chains in the United States, where he held various positions of increasing responsibility. Beginning his career as a specialty departments team lead, he focused on driving sales across departments and maintaining merchandise security. From Bjorn’s efforts to maintain precise inventory levels, his store’s electronics department saw an 83 percent decrease in shrinkage.
Prior to joining Great American, Bjorn most recently served as a service and engagement lead, developing customer relationships through accurate and efficient practices. His commitment to consistent service led to the highest guest net promoter score in his store’s history, a 94 percent grade for overall customer satisfaction. Bjorn will leverage these customer experiences in his work as an underwriter to assist in developing industry-leading environmental solutions.
“The environmental insurance field is an ever-evolving industry with flourishing business opportunities,” Bjorn said. “Even more, Great American is a company known for its stability and longevity.”
