Heidi Bauermeister knows the risks of chemical manufacturing companies inside and out. “Heidi thinks like we think. She really knows our company,” one client said.

Her clients are large, multinational firms with complex risks, further complicated by the hardening market over the last several quarters. Considered essential throughout the pandemic, her clients continued business operations through COVID-19 shutdowns.

One client struggled with piecing together sufficient excess capacity at an affordable rate. Bauermeister used data, analytics and customized projections to show the client the value of the various layers of coverage and how different scenarios of retentions and co-insurance limits would look.

Clearly painting the financial picture helped the client see where the value was. Pleased with her results, the client said, “Heidi is the best broker ever!”

Another international client relies significantly on the use of captives in its program. Bauermeister utilized available resources to structure the tower in the best way for the client, who noted, “Heidi gets deeper than anyone else and rolls her sleeves up and helps the process.” The result was a program that far exceeded expectations.

Bauermeister is known to be solution-focused. One client summarized their experience with Bauermeister: “She is really good at what she does, because she is not afraid to work from the bottom up on programs. This, combined with her wealth of knowledge and relationship management, makes her a power broker.”
