Aon Broker Brian Sebold Recognized as a 2020 Retail Power Broker
Brian Sebold, Senior Vice President, Aon
Speaking with Power Broker judges, one admiring client of Aon’s Brian Sebold made a point of not just lauding Sebold’s work this past year, but for his work over the past decade.
“I always walk away with the feeling that he put everything he had into it and had our best interests in mind in approaching the markets,” said Scott Woodward, director, risk management and legal, Trammell Crow Residential.
“To be more specific,” Woodward went on, “the umbrella and excess (GL) markets have really tightened up, become a bit chaotic, and Brian has found pretty innovative ways of approaching that.
“And it’s not just that, he’s been open and honest about the markets,” Woodward said.
“We have a large fleet and a lot of coverage issues and challenges in today’s market,” said another client.
“He really put our best foot forward to [secure the] best outcome we could get.”
For a client that installs HVAC equipment, Sebold identified 47 possible coverage enhancements on its casualty program. Of those, he achieved 37 of them for no additional premium.
“This is my 16th year in the insurance industry, and we are facing a marketplace that has never been more challenging,” Sebold said in his Power Broker® application.
“To face these challenges, I know that open and honest communication is critical,” he said.
