With over 35 years in the Property/Casualty insurance business, my career started as an underwriter and I grew gradually into a variety of roles where my responsibilities became broader while working for major insurers . My experiences in management include leading regional operations with major insurers  over 8 years as a managing executive with two different insurance brokers in the GTA and more recently, general manager of an MGA that specialized in energy before being named President of Modern Specialty Insurance . I bring that variety of functional experiences, learning to lead people and developing working relationships, covering almost all aspects of an insurance to my current position.
