Beecher Carlson Broker Amanda Lania Recognized as a 2019 Renewable Energy Power Broker
Amanda Lania, Account Manager, Beecher Carlson
“We have had the privilege of watching Amanda’s career as she has truly developed as an insurance broker,” said a risk manager of Beecher Carlson’s Amanda Lania.
“Recently, we were putting together — at the 11th hour, of course — an extensive request-for-proposal bid response. Amanda, without blinking, jumped on our difficult and time-sensitive bond request and was even early with the results. Amanda was extremely involved in our property and casualty renewal and worked tirelessly on our behalf with underwriters and carriers.”
“We have had construction projects that have run into many delays and they have worked with the insurance companies many times to get our builder’s risk policies extended,” said an assistant executive director. “During our annual renewal, she worked with the markets to get our premiums reduced this year.”
A new waste-to-energy client was struggling with drastically increased renewal pricing as part of their facility operator’s master insurance program. The cost had doubled, despite the client having no losses. Lania was able to work with the underwriters to get them comfortable with the exposure.
By pulling them out of their operator-controlled master insurance program and putting them on a stand-alone placement, the client achieved a 40 percent rate savings and their own dedicated limits. The client was so pleased with the results that they chose to cancel their placement then in effect mid-term in favor of the alternative that Lania had developed.
