HUB International Broker Lynn Killeen Recognized as a 2020 Private Client Power Broker
Lynn Killeen, Senior Vice President, Family Office Specialist, HUB International
Lynn Killeen works closely with high net worth families to design personal risk management programs.
She began her career as a claims processor more than 30 years ago and has since worked her way up in the insurance industry as a lifelong learner who stays informed on the latest market trends and offerings.
Family office managers seek out Killeen for her creativity, technical expertise, client advocacy and her ability to get things done quickly and efficiently.
In one example, a high net worth client’s house burned to the ground as it was being constructed.
Killeen worked with the insurance company and the builder to not only secure the proceeds but also to have construction start again in just a couple of weeks.
“I’ll never forget it … She handled it all so quickly. We always had such a wonderful, long-standing relationship with Lynn and are in our third generation with her. She’s so personable and just gets it,” the client said.
The COO of a hedge fund management firm in New York said Killeen recently took over the risk program for the family office about a year and a half ago.
While she was appropriately discreet, he said it was clear from the onset that she “understood the unique issues billionaire families deal with.”
Killeen was later able to secure a policy for a client who had a professional-sized ice hockey rink constructed at his home.
“Most carriers either didn’t fully understand the needs or weren’t willing to touch it. She really took the time to understand,” he said.
