Here are the 2022 Power Brokers®

Five EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants and Edgewood Healthcare Advisors team members were named Risk & Insurance Power Broker® winners and four were announced as finalists.

The winners all had something in common: commitment to client service, industry knowledge, strong work ethic, and a devotion to learning and education. Learn more about each individual below.

Charlie Jimenez, At Large

Jimenez recommended a firm buy a standalone cyber policy following a social engineering fraud event. Aware that the policy clause could conflict with that of their crime policy, he was careful in its structure and was able to avoid any claim payout delays when another event occurred. His solution saved the client stress and allowed quick preservation of capital.

Chris Moore, Agriculture

Moore pitched a way to a prospective client to insure a specific class of trucks despite the market’s limited appetite for the risk, and won the business after a bidding process. According to the risk manager, it was Moore’s creativity, drive and initiative that were most impressive.

Thompson Mackey, Cyber Insurance

Mackey works strategically to assure that his clients’ risks are presented in the best light possible. The volatility in the cyber market requires it to be successful, and Mackey has created a submission overview presentation that helps present his clients’ companies both favorably and in a timely fashion.

Gary Lavery, Manufacturing

Lavery is known for providing strong client communication and education. He has a commanding knowledge of the policies and is able to educate clients as needed. He also takes the time to explain the details and knows the new laws and regulations important to the manufacturing industry.

Tony Lorber, Real Estate

Lorber worked with a client with many properties in an area hit hard by extreme weather to create a modeling tool that isolates various hellscapes (fire, flood, earthquakes, hurricanes) at the micro-location level, so properties with higher risk are allocated more for insurance. This unique solution will inform future decisions on acquisitions and dispositions.
