Aon Broker Blair Wunderlich Recognized as a 2019 Fine Arts Power Broker
Blair Wunderlich, Account Executive, Aon
Hillwood Museum wanted to include a Fabergé-exclusive exhibit in its facilities.
“These were rare artifacts to be borrowed from private collectors, museums around the world and the Prince of Monaco,” explained MJ Hagan, collections manager.
Broker Blair Wunderlich worked directly with the institute’s lawyers for each piece’s loan contract. She guided Hagan on whether adding the collection under their overall blanket policy made sense or if they should take out a separate policy just for the Fabergé.
“She facilitated meetings with other agents who worked on similar projects in larger museums to get us the advice we needed to take on this collection,” Hagan said.
And now, Fabergé artifacts — from the world-famous eggs to handcrafted sculptures — have a home at the Hillwood exhibition.
Kele McComsey, director, museum division at Mana Contemporary, said Wunderlich is great to work with: “She’s on top of things,” he said.
“And that’s really what your agent should be doing — going out and being active in your business.” For example, Wunderlich was integral in reviewing Mana’s policies. “She helped us navigate through recent claims,” and has been able to lower premium year over year while giving advice on best practices.
“Blair took over our account from a previous agent who retired,” said a third client. “We were having issues with our renewal due to claims from the year before, and Blair did incredible research to get us what we needed. She has been an invaluable resource to us.”
