As the Senior Vice President of Underwriting, Sean helps to establish Berkshire Hathaway GUARD’s underwriting philosophy, appetite, and procedures for all lines of coverage to ensure that corporate goals for profitability are achieved. He is also directly responsible for all of the company’s Underwriting Business Units.
Throughout his tenure, Sean has had many accomplishments. He is credited with refining an expert-type system for our Small Business Unit (which has historically issued over 90% of the companies’ policies) with guidelines, rules, and logic in place to limit the number and nature of the decisions that had to be made and, thereby, expediting processing. In addition, he was instrumental in introducing the concept of Small Business Unit Teams to better manage workflow AND still satisfy rigorous customer service standards. For Premium Audit (his original point of entry within the industry), he spearheaded the creation of a new, voluntary online audit procedure to supplement existing methodologies.
With over 20 years of experience within the insurance industry (including about a decade and a half with Berkshire Hathaway GUARD), he was previously employed by Legion Insurance Company in Philadelphia. Sean has worked in various roles on the agency side of operations and obtained his Pennsylvania producer license in the early 1990’s.
Sean graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in accounting from Moravian College. He is currently working on getting his Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation.
