Aon Broker Larry Bowlus Recognized as a 2019 Technology Power Broker
Larry Bowlus, Senior Vice President, Aon
Professional liability insurance veteran Larry Bowlus is a broker his clients have come to rely on. His positive traits are numerous, but they include the fact he is a great listener who is also skilled at communicating with various internal constituents.
“I didn’t have an insurance background coming into the job. It was more thrust upon me,” said one executive in charge of a global risk management program.
“So I really need to rely on our partners and brokers. As long as I am in charge of insurance at this company, nobody else will even get a chance to look at the coverage because I can’t imagine it being close to what [Bowlus and his associates] bring to the table,” he said.
“When I think of Larry in terms of customer service, three things come to mind: highly knowledgeable, very responsive and customer oriented. He is role modelling all three, and if things, for some reason, do not work out, he proactively addresses the issue immediately,” said another risk management professional with a Fortune 500 technology firm.
For global biotech firm Amgen, Bowlus and his team, over the past 12 months, completed a very successful D&O renewal in a hardening life sciences market with a new risk management team in place. Capacity was expanded to include the London market, and coverage was broadened.
For an aluminum manufacturer, Bowlus successfully put together D&O coverage after the first excess insurer bowed out at the last minute, throwing a wrench into the works.
