Aon Broker Brian Sebold Recognized as 2019 Agriculture Power Broker
Brian Sebold, Senior Vice President, Aon
Just because an insurance program is working doesn’t mean there’s no room for improvement. Aon’s Brian Sebold never takes the path of least resistance, always scouring the market for better coverage at better rates for his clients.
“He doesn’t just look at something and say ‘renew as is.’ He always strives to provide better limits and very similar prices,” said the director of risk and insurance at one supermarket client.
“This past year he helped to present our insurance program to our senior leaders — president, vice president, COO and general counsel. He’s very willing and able to break things down to the Nth degree so we understand what we’re buying. He’s become a strategic partner and someone on whom we depend when we have challenges presented by our business leaders.”
“What sets him apart in my mind is simply his tenacity.
He’s always on target with details, and he has the relationships and experience with all of the markets to really negotiate strongly and continually on our behalf,” said Chris Mangelsdorf, corporate risk manager for Martin Sprocket & Gear Inc.
“His knowledge of what we do and how we do it is second to none.”
When one of his largest clients was acquired in 2018, Sebold went head to head with the buyer’s broker to see who could produce a stronger combined program. Sebold ultimately was able to save the company $1.4 million in premium.
