Thank You To Marsh



Marsh held its annual Insurance Company Conference last month and I would be remiss not to include a brief note giving it well-deserved kudos and a thank you for the privilege of speaking.

It was just as you would expect from a Marsh conference. Held at the uber-hip W hotel on Union Square in New York, snacks between sessions that could have held their own on the Food Network’s Chopped, and, most importantly, superb conference panels. You know it’s a serious conference when the President and CEO of the company shows up. I had the pleasure of meeting Dan Glaser, the man at the top of Marsh & McLennan, parent company of the 54,000 employee organization made up of Marsh, Guy Carpenter, Mercer and Oliver Wyman.

There were panels on such things as underwriting trends, Wall Street and insurance, regulation and cyber. I’ve seen a lot of cyber panels. But never one that included an FBI Special Agent involved with fighting cyber crime against ISIS and Al-Qaeda. It was riveting. And, I hate to say, more exciting than analyzing whether web site hacks involve a “publication” for purposes of Part B coverage of a CGL policy.

Thank you to Don Roberts and Chris Cancro of Marsh for the kind invitation to speak on my annual top ten coverage cases of the year article. But I am holding you both responsible for the three pounds that I gained.
