Aon Broker George Montana Recognized as a 2023 Retail Power Broker
George Montana, Vice President, National Casualty, Aon
What sets broker George Montana apart from others is that he makes an effort to understand not only his clients’ businesses but also the rationale for the decisions they make.
Take the situation of his clients at a multifamily asset management firm that required a primary casualty program without a deductible.
“Which means that there are only a small number of companies who are willing to write that kind of insurance,” said the firm’s representative. “Which also makes George’s job much more difficult.
“There are business reasons why we make that decision, and they outweigh a number of other reasons why someone might prefer to have some kind of deductible or retention,” they added.
With a full understanding of the firm’s business model and objectives, Montana was able to help the client craft a plan to work with the excess and primary markets during a two-year period so that they could successfully maintain insurer relationships, program structure and favorable pricing.
Montana also helped a privately held manufacturer with a specialized program for a segment of its business. “He got us through a challenging placement and came back with a great solution,” the company’s risk manager shared.
“He’s so detail-oriented and straightforward — doesn’t pull punches, doesn’t hide the good or the bad. You can depend on what he tells you.”
