Aon Broker Patricia Piccinini Recognized as a 2019 Public Sector Power Broker
Patricia Piccinini, Vice President, Aon
Patricia Piccinini does not balk at a challenge. “Tricia is outstanding … when Aon took over my company’s account for risk management services, she was tasked with renewing our very complex property program in 30 days,” said Cathy Frye, insurance administrator, Port Authority of Allegheny County.
“An impossible task she not only accomplished but also did so while saving me premium and adding some much-needed terms-and-conditions enhancements to the policy. We didn’t even know one another yet, and she went all out for my company.”
Another client, a U.S. state director of insurance, said Piccinini’s approach to revamping its boiler and machinery coverage was beyond professional. “She was very honest with us: ‘These are your problems and you need to realize them, and here are some solutions.’ “
Another state’s manager of claims and risk management said Piccinini uses her relationships and integrity with underwriters to secure coverage.
This year, he needed an internal service deductible for water loss, which, he said, wasn’t something carriers wanted to do. But Piccinini did not give up: Now the entity is able to go to its agencies and show it has a loss prevention strategy in place.
“Her determination is priceless,” said Frye. “As the client, we must rely on the broker to advocate our position, and Tricia delivers on that respect. I honestly don’t know how she does it, but whatever reasonable request I have, she can always achieve it for me.”
