Zodiac Insurance Services Broker David Wash Recognized as a 2019 Entertainment Power Broker
David Wash, President, Zodiac Insurance Services
This year, David Wash and his team at Zodiac Insurance Services have been working to find insurance solutions for entertainment companies that use mobile equipment and inflatables.
Wash reports that the challenge has been developing products in an almost non-existent insurance market that has been through significant periods of losses. Underwriting profitably in an industry segment that has not been kind to predecessors requires creativity, diligence and attention to detail.
Zodiac met with U.S. manufacturers to learn about their offerings and safety protocols, implementing the latter as mandatory. Wash believes that working both with them and also inspectors and emergency experts has prevented a number of potential accidents.
At Lloyd’s of London insurer Beazley, senior underwriter Richard Everall reports: “Beazley have been very fortunate to partner with Zodiac on this project. It is rare to find the level of passion, detail and care for the customer that David and the Zodiac team bring to what remains a very challenging sector.
“Zodiac continually refine the existing market by developing and testing new solutions which, coupled with their fast-growing network and market support, has built the well-respected Managing General Agent that Beazley enjoys a strong relationship with and has done all the way back to the company foundation.
“We can expect to see Zodiac bring many more innovative ideas and products to market in the coming years.”
