Aon Broker Liam Murphy Recognized as a 2019 Transportation Power Broker
Liam Murphy, Managing Director, Aon
When Liam Murphy can’t find a solution that solves his clients’ problems, he creates one. Such was the case with FreightRover, which builds technology solutions for fleet management, motor carrier payment, supply chain financing and more. It also wanted to provide insurance for carrier fleets.
Murphy pulled in multiple markets to build a sponsored insurance program for drivers, charging premium based on driving behavior. By structuring the program as a risk retention group, he secured discounts that enabled FreightRover to offer competitive overage while also incenting safe driving.
“Liam was able to work across the various groups within Aon and externally to find the perfect partner for our need. He was then able to structure the product to fit perfectly within our rapidly growing solution,” said Eric Meek, CEO, FreightRover.
Chase Welsh, EVP of risk management and general counsel for Celadon Trucking, lauded Murphy’s persistence and creativity: “The team takes a mentality that there is a solution for every problem, and at times the problem requires a very creative solution. We have explored and utilized different insurance vehicles (e.g. captives, RRGs, etc.) and have traveled both domestically and internationally seeking additional capacity.”
Murphy’s clients also praised his availability: “Liam is the type of partner who will always pick up your call or quickly respond to an email request. If there are follow-up items needed, he is the first to take responsibility for circling back with the group,” Meek said.
