AssuredPartners Broker Marion Hope Recognized as a 2021 Aviation Power Broker
Marion Hope, Senior Vice President, AssuredPartners
Marion Hope was one of the first American citizens to work at Lloyd’s of London as an aviation broker.
Through owning many aircrafts, Hope has developed unique, firsthand knowledge of what his clients are facing.
By embracing a 100% hands-on client service philosophy, each client recognizes the time and energy Hope puts forth to thoroughly learn their unique risks and exposures and address those needs with practical solutions.
Eric Sobel, CEO of Land N Sea Inc., said Hope recognizes their relationship isn’t about one year or one policy.
“The only way to build a long-term relationship is to consistently do the right thing for your client,” Sobel said.
“Marion always does that for me. For example … I have young children at home and with COVID cases rising in Florida, I was afraid to go to FlightSafety Orlando for my annual recurrent training. Marion explained the situation to my underwriter and got them to approve a one-time exception for in-aircraft training. This way, I didn’t have to stay in a hotel, be confined to a simulator with someone I didn’t know. To me, that’s what customer service is. He understood my concerns and went to work on figuring out an acceptable alternative solution.”
Elbert Boyd, CEO of E. Boyd & Associates, Inc., believes that Hope is one of the most capable brokers in the market today.
“He is also a seasoned pilot in various categories. Therefore, he is 100% capable of understanding the needs of those of us who are active in aviation,” Boyd said.
