The best brokers don’t just fulfill clients’ current needs, they anticipate new ones. A Power Broker helps their client navigate fluctuations in its risk profile as the business and the external risk environment evolve.

One of Jesus Gonzalez’s clients was moving a primarily manual process to a digital platform, which increased cyber exposure. The client did not quite see the value of a cyber insurance policy. Gonzalez took the lead, educating company leaders about cyber insurance and pitching successfully to London and Latin American markets.

Ultimately, he procured the largest cyber placement to date in Latin America, which met the client’s limit needs and reduced its total cost of risk.

“I was amazed at his ability to explain IT technical matters to the finance department and insurance terms to the IT department,” said Rene Martinez, director of insurance & risk management for CEMEX.

For another client, Gonzalez developed a cyber liability guideline for vendors and service providers, so it could understand its partners’ cyber security measures and protect itself from third-party liability.

“Jesus and his team held a cyber infrastructure and quantification meeting with our new CIO to understand the business and provide tools to assess the risk exposure and effectively manage it going forward,” said Andrea Emilia Carranza-Gomez, executive director of risk management, Clairos.
