Marsh Broker Paula Bennett Recognized as a 2019 Pharmaceutical Power Broker
Paula Bennett, Managing Director, Marsh
Paula Bennett’s approach to client service is to partner with the client, conduct the necessary research to fully understand their business, and then become an extension of their team, acting with a sense of urgency to get to optimal outcome.
“Paula quickly pulled a strong syndicate of insurance carriers to bid on the D&O policy that increased demand and ensured the most competitive pricing,” said Jim Engelhart, chief financial officer at Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Company LTD.
“As a result, we ended up with an outstanding syndicate of carriers at a very competitive price. Paula helped secure our second year of coverage with no premium increase.”
Paula “has just been incredibly effective and responsive,” said the director, corporate insurance group at a pharmaceutical company.
“She is that person when on the beach in Hawaii, on vacation, she’s going to take my call,” the client said. “She is a cancer survivor and was still doing her duties while under treatment — that’s how dedicated she is.”
Bennett has more than 15 years of experience in the pharmaceutical/life sciences space. She stays current on industry and market developments by reading relevant articles and attending seminars and training relevant to the industry. Bennett represents some of the largest companies within the pharmaceutical/life sciences space and acts as a resource for colleagues in the U.S. and around the world.
