Having joined the Sovereign family in July of 2018 as National Manager, Alan leads the Professional Liability team, where he strengthens and enhances Sovereign’s footprint in this specialized business class.
Alan began underwriting Professional Liability, Management Liability (Directors & Officers, Employment Practices, and Fiduciary Liability), and Crime/Fidelity all the way back in 1996 while working with a global insurer. His role and responsibilities continued to grow, as he gained specialty experience in a leadership role (and some gray hair) with two other international insurers before joining Sovereign.
Although underwriting exposures and risks remains his primary function, Alan continues to relish meeting business partners face to face, to strengthen existing relationships and create new ones. He also loves sinking his teeth into coverage reviews and policy wordings.
Although Alan has travelled extensively for school, adventure, and networking, his work experience is centered in Toronto. His loyalty is firm – through the good times and bad, he’s a true Blue Jays, Leafs, and Raptors fan. And he’s made sure that his daughter doesn’t stray from those loyalties.
Winter months are spent downhill skiing and playing Evil level Sudoku. Summer months – for the last 20 years - have been spent on the softball diamond playing in the Toronto Insurance Mixed Softball League, and enjoying post-game discussion.
