Senior Vice President
McGriff serves our clients' global needs every day. In fact, the majority of our clients have international operations, and we've worked with a variety of companies to implement global insurance programs covering exposures throughout the world. Our experienced team offers the knowledge, flexibility and contacts to meet your international coverage needs. While many of our clients with overseas operations are headquartered in North America, we also serve foreign-based clients with U.S. operations. Our service plans for international clients are based on our proven ability to structure and maintain programs and services that address international risk management needs. For U.S. clients, when desired, we provide master-controlled programs from home, offering both local coverage as well as "Difference in Conditions/Difference in Limits" coverage for all international operations. This offers our clients more control over both the pricing and the coverage provided. For our internationally-based clients, we are also able to design, implement and service master-controlled programs using our worldwide relationships with underwriters and brokers. When clients in foreign countries are required to buy local insurance or arrange fronting due to legal and/or contractual arrangements, it is imperative to select the best local intermediary. We align ourselves with the most qualified and capable local brokerage firms to complement our efforts in any foreign venue. In fact, we maintain personal relationships with at least two to three firms in each country where our clients operate, and have an excellent list of local brokers available in any country where you are operating.
I have more than 30 years of experience in the insurance industry providing risk management solutions for large and mid-size commercial accounts. My areas of expertise include program design, placement, implementation and servicing of all lines of commercial insurance. I work with a very diverse group of clients, with emphasis on the construction industry. My clients know that I have their best interest at heart and have many long-term client relationships, some dating back 20+ years. I am proud to say that I have held my CIC designation for more than 25 years. In my free time, I enjoy travel and am a lover of the arts. You can also find me at the Atlanta Humane Society where I volunteer a couple of weekends every month.
