Aon Broker Taylor Mitcham Recognized as a 2019 Transportation Power Broker
Taylor Mitcham, Senior Account Executive, Aon
One provider of specialized freight transportation and environmental services has a risk profile that many insurers have little appetite for.
In 2018, the company’s incumbent carrier decided to leave the space, and right around renewal time, they took on a significant loss. The company’s risk manager turned to Aon to for help going to market to assemble a new program. Taylor Mitcham and his team had to go into full marketing mode, but secured a good outcome for the company.
When the company went through a large restructure, Mitcham was there to help guide them through, keeping them covered amid the change of control.
Mitcham’s industry relationships help him secure optimal outcomes for all his clients.
“[Taylor and his team] have an endless amount of connections in the industry and know individuals to assist with every problem. On more than one occasion this year, I have requested introductions to individuals for issues expanding beyond insurance, and they always deliver. Their value far exceeds being our broker,” said Chase Welsh, EVP of risk management and general counsel for Celadon Trucking.
“I also go to them for recommendations for contacts outside of insurance but still in the transportation industry. They are an all-around great resource,” one risk manager said.
