HUB International Broker Amy DeJong Recognized as a 2023 Captives Power Broker
Amy DeJong, Vice President, Risk Management, HUB International
Excess auto liability is one of the hardest markets right now. That’s what Norfolk Iron and Metal discovered during its latest insurance renewal, which threatened to bring about a significant rate increase for its transportation fleet.
When the company approached Amy DeJong about the problem, she immediately sought out alternative cost-effective solutions. One measure she proposed was a new excess auto liability group captive. By making the model simple to understand and helping the firm navigate the application process, DeJong enabled her client to quickly and seamlessly join the captive. The new program also made it possible to lower its insurance cost.
“Amy is the ultimate professional and continues to bring new ideas and solutions to us each year,” said Brad Noel, CFO, EVP, Norfolk Iron and Metal. “In addition to always being available as a resource to us, she also brings extensive knowledge and a broad network base to continually provide value-added services to our company.”
Having previously worked on the client side dealing with large self-funded programs and single-parent captives, DeJong knows what insureds need and where she can add value.
Another client, Michelle Killoran, CFO, VP of finance, Scheels, said: “Amy has played an integral role for several years in the risk management practices for Scheels. Her industry knowledge, coupled with her customer service and persistence, give us the peace of mind that she always has our best interests in mind and is a true strategic partner.”
