Season Two – Episode Fifteen
This week on the Insurance Coffee House USA, we are joined by David Sandler, President of Risk Management at Everest Insurance.
David joined Everest Insurance in April 2016 to head up the Risk Management Group and in that time they have achieved massive growth – hiring 900 insurance professionals, launching 150 new products / services and tripling the size of the business.
Although David and his team have hired a significant number of staff during this time, David urges insurance business leaders to not compromise on quality when recruiting and only bring in high performers.
This has quickly led to a culture of collaboration, high quality execution and autonomy for making decisions which empowers the team members and helps attract other good people to the business.
As well as attracting high quality talent, bringing the latest technology into the business and working with insurtechs to provide client solutions is a further secret to their success and has also seen them win Insurtech Incubator of the year awards.
David encourages insurance executives to take their time when considering their next move and think about the benefits and opportunities they are looking for that will be a good fit for them in a new role. He encourages listeners to reach out to him after the show with any comments or questions and you can do this via his LinkedIn page https://www.linkedin.com/in/david-sandler-20490411/
