Risk & Insurance Magazine Announces 2010 Reinsurance ‘Power Brokers’

Jul 30, 2010



Risk and Insurance magazine announced the winners of its Reinsurance Power Broker® survey on August 1, 2010.

According to the publication, those names to the list were judged primarily on their creativity in solving clients’ challenges during 2010, their demonstrated knowledge of reinsurance and their high level of client service.

The awards go to individual brokers and teams, not brokerage firms.

A list of the winners and various feature articles from Risk and Insurance magazine are reprinted below.
