Gallagher Broker Jimmy Clark Recognized as a 2023 Real Estate Power Broker
Jimmy Clark, Executive Director, Gallagher
It might be true that no one likes a know-it-all, but the same is not true of people who know a lot.
Just ask Jimmy Clark’s clients.
“While his knowledge of insurance is impressive, he truly understands the intricacies of real estate itself, which has allowed him to play an essential part in our internal deal team by providing valuable feedback and thinking through ways to manage risk,” said Steve Potting, vice president of finance at Eastwind Development.
“His knowledge and value-add solutions include everything from insurance changes to suggested contractual changes, which allow us to properly manage our total risk.”
Jeremy Rosenthall, managing director at M&P Shopping Centers, agrees: “Jimmy is extremely knowledgeable both from an insurance side — on new things, what changes are coming along — but he’s also very knowledgeable within the real estate industry of what other people are doing, what options are out there and how people are tackling different items.”
As yet another client puts it, “Jimmy gets it. He understands cash flow is king and what you are trying to do is balance premium against risk profiles and the future. Something that may not make sense this year may make more sense next year given where the hotel industry is going. He has even reached out knowing a property issue in the industry might affect other hotels we own that are not covered by his brokerage — advice we really needed the other brokers to pay attention to.”
