As the companies have grown, so has his role and he is now responsible for life and living benefits medical underwriting and medical claims assessment.  He has remained active in the insurance industry in North America as past chair of several organizations and remains active on a number of industry and legislative fronts
He's a strong advocate of the importance of the relationship between the underwriting team and the field, and works hard with our sales channels to strengthen that bond.  For companies and advisors to succeed in the future, they must do it through teamwork and a positive relationship.
